I’m absolutely thrilled at the presence that PowerShell has had at the IT Pro week of TechEd 2008. There have been a huge number of breakout sessions and interactive theatres talking about PowerShell and showing how to use it to manage your environment, many of which have been full or close too it (especially the interactive theatres — they were jam packed, standing room only in the back). There’s also a PowerShell demo pod in the Management (blue) area and many vendors who have products in the PowerShell space ready to answer questions, show off demos, and in some cases give away free products too! I’m sure Jeffrey Snover must be really happy (probably an understatement) with the well deserved interest and attention that PowerShell is getting. This is such a fun space to work in, and PowerShell is absolutely the best technology I have ever worked with!

One thought on “PowerShell presence at TechEd 2008 IT Pro”
It was a VERY good TechEd for PowerShell. What impressed me the most was the number of people that said how PowerShell had saved their butts, made them heros with their peers or allowed them to do things that they could never do.
It reminded me of this great Iron Chef episode with Wolfgang Puck. The judges were all raving about the presentation, the wonderful smell, the rainbow of colors. Wolfgang in a quasi-irritated, quasi-exasperated voice said, “Yes but what about the FLAVOR?!”
