During the past two weeks I’ve had the pleasure of sitting down and chatting with Carl Franklin, Richard Campbell and Greg Hughes of .NET Rocks!, RunAs Radio and dnrTV fame about PowerShell, PowerGUI and the Quest AD Cmdlets. For those of you who don’t know, .NET Rocks! is an internet audio talk show about .NET and dnrTV is the equivalent in an internet screencast format. Both of these are targeted at the .NET developer. RunAs Radio is an internet audio talk show for IT professionals who work with Microsoft products.
I didn’t know what to expect from any of these interviews, but fortunately Carl, Richard and Greg are real pros at this and it was a real treat to chat with them. I believe the end result is much better than what you get from the typical webcast or screencast because they ask the right questions and great conversation comes out as a result.
I was planning on blogging about this before any of these were posted, but these guys are really on top of things and to my surprise this morning I found out that Carl already posted the recording from dnrTV, so you can watch the episode #99 now. It is simply called “Kirk Munro on PowerGUI”, and can be found here. The .NET Rocks! and RunAs Radio sessions are not posted yet, but they should be later this week. I’ll post an update once they are available.
Whether you’re interested in PowerGUI, PowerShell, .NET or working with Microsoft products in general, I encourage you to watch dnrTV and listen to RunAs Radio and .NET Rocks! What a great way to spend your morning and evening commute in the subway, on the bus, or in your car (although please don’t watch dnrTV while driving your car…that’s just not a good idea; no matter how much you want to learn what PowerGUI and PowerShell can do for you, they won’t fix your car).
Thanks again to Carl and Richard for getting in touch with me and setting this up! It’s been a great experience!
Lastly, if you’re interested in listening to a bi-weekly podcast that is specifically about PowerShell, you should also check out the PowerScripting Podcast. The PowerScripting Podcast is hosted by Jonathan Walz and Hal Rottenberg and if you’re into all things PowerShell like I am, this gives you one more way to stay informed about PowerShell during the daily commute.
Thanks for listening!
