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: 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!
