Join North East Bytes for our third event of 2013. Following on from the great events that we've had over the last two years, we've lined up another great event for your benefit. We are really excited to welcome the local teams entering this year's Imagine Cup event and we'll also be taking a look at managing VMware with PowerShell.
Imagine Cup North East teams
We are pleased to welcome the teams from Imagine Cup North East who have entered the Imagine Cup competition this year. Each team will be pitching their projects and their entries. Come along to support our local entrants and give them some real world feedback on their projects and solutions which they can then use to strengthen their entry into this year's competition with the eventual aim of winning the UK final and competing with the rest of the world at the world final in St. Petersburg, Russia!
This is a great opportunity for our community to support the students and future of our community!
PowerCLI 101 – Jonathan Medd
IT Pros are starting to come to grips with the idea of managing Microsoft products with PowerShell, but it's not just Microsoft who are making use of the powerful automation capabilities on offer. VMware have been developing their own PowerShell-based management shell for some time - PowerCLI. In this session, Jonathan Medd, a Microsoft MVP for Windows PowerShell and VMware vEXPERT, will introduce PowerCLI and show you how to really take control of your virtual infrastructure.
Jonathan Medd is a Freelance Virtualisation and Automation Consultant based in the UK. He has been working with Windows Infrastructure products since 1997, particularly around Active Directory and Exchange, and most recently virtualisation with VMware products. He has held the MCSE certification since 1998 and VMware VCP certification since 2008. In 2007 he discovered Windows PowerShell and he spends a lot of time encouraging IT pros he meets to use PowerShell by talking with them, giving presentations to User Groups or via posts on his blog http://jonathanmedd.net. He also co-hosts a regular PowerShell podcast which contains info on how to learn PowerShell and what’s going on in the PowerShell world – you can find this at http://get-scripting.blogspot.com.
