PowerShell Deep Dive Recap

PowerShell Deep Dive 2011 Conference LogoHere’s all you need to know about the upcoming first ever official PowerShell conference collected by me from multiple websites and put here in one place. :)

When & Where

April 17-19 2011, Las Vegas


Hugely discounted $850 if you register by March 31, and full $1825 starting April 1. To get the discount  register here and use code ATGNJR6E.

[UPDATE] Note that this discounted price is good if you limit yourself to the PowerShell session. If you want full flexibility of all of TEC – you need to pay for the regular full conference pass. Also note that there is an extra fee involved if you sign-up for the pre-conference training.

What People are Saying about the Conference

April 17: 4 hour pre-conference hands on workshop with Don Jones – everyone will get a computer lab and Don will make sure that you are up to speed with PowerShell, and ready for the Deep Dive on April 18 & 19.

April 18-19 two days of lots of PowerShell contest including a scripting party, and sessions. Sessions will consist of regular 75 minute “using PowerShell to manage X” kind of sessions, and deep PowerShell sessions related to the PowerShell language per se. The latter will be shorter and will include a lot of discussions with the actual PowerShell product team so you know why they implemented the system in a particular way, and they will collect from you the feedback they need to make things better!

Here’s the current quick list of just some of the session names – full descriptions can be found here.

  • Jeffrey Snover:  Proxy Function Party
  • Bruce Payette:  Why does it work that way? A look inside the PowerShell runtime
  • Kenneth Hansen & Don Jones:  The cliffs of PowerShell
  • Darren Mar-Ella:  Advanced Managing Group Policy with PowerShell
  • Brandon Shell:  An intro to PowerShell and Why You Need It
  • Jerry Camel:  Automating BPOS Exchange Administration with PowerShell and C#
  • Kirk Munro:  Defining domain-specific vocabularies using Windows PowerShell
  • James Booth:  Files, FIM, & PowerShell
  • Kirk Munro:  Managing Hyper-V with Windows PowerShell
  • Jeffrey Hicks:  Mastering Format and Type Extensions
  • Richard Siddaway:  WMI Gotchas and Hidden Gems
  • Craig Martin:  FIM PowerShell Deep Dive
  • Sean Kearney:  Leverage PowerShell with vbScript and vice versa
  • Jeffrey Hicks:  Mastering Format and Type Extensions
  • Kirk Munro:  Defining domain-specific vocabularies using Windows PowerShell
  • James O’Neil:  The PowerShell Library for Hyper-V: How it was Built, and How it is Used

    Does the $850 price only include Deep Dive events?

    The price I quoted to my boss ($1,645.00 – Conference fee) I though also included other aspects of TEC2011.

      This is correct: $850 is PowerShell Deep Dive only. If you want full conference then the price is higher.

      Also, note that there is a separate charge for Don’s pre-conference workshop.
