Video: Sean Kearney – The Most Energized PowerShell MVP

At the MVP Summit this year I could not help recording this quick chat with the one and only ye110wbeard, a.k.a The Energized Tech, a.k.a. PowerShell MVP from Canada – Sean Kearney:

We talk about PowerShell (surprise! :)) and what he likes the most about it:

  • Simplicity to get a lot of things in one command,
  • Ease of Active Directory management (Unlock-QADUser is his favorite cmdlet),
  • Ability to connect to web services from PowerShell scripts,
  • PowerShell on his BlackBerry smartphone (via PowerGUI MobileShell), and
  • Ways to get started with PowerShell.

For even more Sean’s videos visit his own video channel here.

Most other PowerShell MVPs make guest appearances in the background. As a bonus entertainment feature: see how many of them you can count! 😉

Interview with Jeffrey Snover

Check out this video shot a couple of weeks ago at TechEd Europe in Berlin.

In a break between the sessions, we sat together with Jeffrey to discuss what excited him the most at the conference, the state of PowerShell today, adoption of PowerShell at Microsoft and across the industry, his new role as Lead Architect for Windows Server, and the future directions of PowerShell and Windows Server manageability.

Jeffrey was incredibly careful not to share any confidential information about specific features in the next versions of PowerShell or Windows Server, but he did talk about the general directions and philosophy. Check it out!
