Demos, slides and videos from Nordic Infrastructure Conference 2012 sessions

On January 13th – 14th the Nordic Infrastructure Conference (NIC) was arranged in Oslo, Norway for the first time. The goal for the conference is creating a premier event for all IT-professionals in the Nordics, and the first edition of NIC was a great success with a number of excellent speakers.


Demos, slides and videos from my 3 sessions at the NIC conference is now available:






Introducing PowerShell 3.0

Since Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows PowerShell has been a part of the core operating system, meaning we will see the next version of PowerShell in Windows 8. In this session we will look at what`s new in Windows PowerShell 3.0, based on the Windows Developer Preview released at the BUILD conference in September. You will get to see new features in PowerShell itself, as well as new modules for managing Windows 8 and Windows Server 8.




Practical PowerShell for the Windows Administrator

Have you ever needed to perform the same task on more than one server? In this session you will see demos on how you can manage Windows systems using Windows PowerShell. You will get to see different techniques for remote management, demos of managing Hyper-V with and without System Center Virtual Machine Manager as well as several other demos.




Preparing for Office 365

In this session we will look at how you can prepare your organization for Office 365, ranging from technical requirements for clients and servers to identity management. The session will focus on the core infrastructure of the Office 365 service.
