Video: Brandon Shell – Module Design for IT Pro

Here’s another great recording from previous PowerShell Deep Dive – Brandon‘s session on module design. Brandon has experience designing PowerShell modules for Splunk and other companies – so there’s a lot to learn from him!

In this session we will deep dive into the thought process behind production module design. The presenter will explain the reason for choices made for the Splunk Module and his own BSonPosh module.

This is a live recording from European TEC 2011 PowerShell Deep Dive conference. See more PowerShell Deep Dive recordings here.

Video: Aleksandar Nikolic – Delegation with Remoting

Here’s recording of @alexandair – PowerShell MVP, constrained runspaces guru and editor of PowerShell Magazine – talking about delegation in PowerShell remoting. I bet not that many of you tried this feature before – so check out this talk that Aleksandar did at the last PowerShell Deep Dive in Frankfurt!

In this session you will learn how to set up a fan-in PowerShell endpoint, and then use it to assign specific administrative tasks to the appropriate users and groups without changing the membership of local Administrators group. By using just the IIS configuration files and PowerShell scripts we will enable dynamic creation of customized automation environments.

Video: Jeffery Hicks – Turn Command-Line Tools into PowerShell Tools

Here’s recording of @jeffhicks – PowerShell MVP, book author and trainer – Jeffery Hicks – talking at the previous PowerShell Deep Dive about how you can turn existing command-line utilities into PowerShell functions so they can become first-class (object emitting ;)) PowerShell citizens.

You can find Jeff’s slides and demo scripts here.

The abstract and video recording are below:

PowerShell is everywhere but there are still many command line tools in the IT Pro’s toolbox, In this session we’ll look at how to turn just about any command line based tool into a PowerShell tool so that you can incorporate it into your PowerShell scripts and daily management tasks. The power of objects in the pipeline is amazing and there’s no reason not to include tools like NETSTAT.EXE or NBTSTAT.EXE. 
1. The Challenge of CLI Tools 
2. Console Text to PowerShell Objects Techniques 
3. Putting It All Together

Video: Richard Siddaway – PowerShell Events

See @rsiddaway / Richard Siddaway (PowerShell MVP and the founder of UK PowerShell usergroup) giving a great overview of PowerShell eventing in this recording from last year’s PowerShell Deep Dive.

Windows is an event driven system. PowerShell is the automation engine for the Microsoft platform. Version 2.0 introduced the ability to work with system events. Many system events do not require action on our part. There are some events that we really need to be aware of and act upon. Gaining access to these events has not been an easy task for the administrator — up until now. 

PowerShell can work with events generated by: 
WMI 
.NET 
• The PowerShell engine 

Between them they give a handle into the inner workings of your system. A customizable, generic approach to handling events will be presented that enables you to perform actions based on the events detected. Events don’t just provide an insight into what’s happening. We can use them to trigger system actions for us — a self-healing system anyone 

The key take aways from this session will be: 
• The PowerShell event engine enables you to interact at a closer level with your system 
• The consumption and processing of events can be as simple or complicated as you require 
• You can use events to teach your system to react a fix things on its own

Video: Shay Levy and Kirk Munro – Leveraging Proxy Functions in PowerShell

See @shaylevy and @poshoholic (PowerShell MVPs Shay Levy and Kirk Munro respectively) talk about PowerShell proxy functions and their open-source module PowerShell Proxy Extensions / PSPX that simplifies creating ones.

Here’s the abstract and the video – enjoy!

Join Shay Levy and Kirk Munro in this session as they take a deep dive into proxy functions in PowerShell. Shay and Kirk have been working together on PowerShell Proxy Extensions, a powerful module that leverages proxy functions and makes it easier than ever to create these powerful extensions to PowerShell. They will demonstrate what proxy functions are and why they are important, and then show how a little scripting savvy (and a really long script) can make your life easier by allowing you to create everything from very simple proxy functions that extend PowerShell to more complex proxy functions that override existing commands, fixing bugs and adding missing features at the same time, all while leveraging inline help as much as possible.

Video recording from PowerShell Deep Dive in Frankfurt. (I apologize for the sound quality, especially when Kirk starts to talk. I think they were using Kirk’s laptop – rather than mine – when showing that and it turned out that it did not have a good microphone.)

Video: Dmitry Sotnikov – PowerShell Jobs in v2 and v3

Another day – another recording from PowerShell Deep Dive. For a change, this one is from a session delivered by yours truly. :) And it is on PowerShell jobs (also known as background jobs) and the functionality that they had in PowerShell 2.0 and are getting in PowerShell 3.0.

PowerShell jobs allow you to run your commands and scripts in the background without blocking your PowerShell. You can run multiple jobs, check their status, and collect results. We will also get a sneak peek of the new Jobs functionality coming in Windows 8!

Video: Tobial Weltner – Regular Expressions in 5 Minutes

One of my favorite lightning talks at the PowerShell Deep Dive in Frankfurt was the one that Tobias did on regular expressions.

Lightning Talks are super quick sessions at the conference in which anyone gets a chance to show something cool in 5 minutes. We tried doing these in Frankfurt and they had just amazing level of energy and got everyone really excited. I think we will do them again in San Diego in May.

Anyway, here’s the recording of the Regular Expressions talk by Tobias which I made in Frankfurt. Enjoy!

Video: Bruce Payette – PowerShell Workflows

Here’s the recording from our previous Deep Dive in which Bruce Payette gives whirlwind tour of PowerShell Workflows – one of the most exciting new features in PowerShell v3. During this session Bruce compares workflow to scripting, shows some examples, and describes the PowerShell workflow architecture.
