Speaking at Nordic Infrastructure Conference 2016

The Nordic Infrastructure Conference (NIC) conference will be held in Oslo, Norway on Thursday 4th and Friday 5th of February 2016 (with a pre-conference day on Wednesday February 3rd).

This will become the 5th edition of NIC, a conference dedicated to driving technical IT best practice across IT Professionals.

Once again I’m honored to be a speaker at this great conference, where I’ll be delivering two sessions. One on my own, and one together with my good friend Aleksandar Nikolic.

The session me and Aleksandar will be delivering is called Remote Management of Nano Server, where we will showcase remote script authoring, remote debugging, improved file transfer as well as some practical demos showing how to manage server roles such as DNS Server and Hyper-V both using PowerShell and familiar GUI tools.

The other session I will deliver is called PowerShell Desired State Configuration – Real World Experiences, where I will share experiences from implementing PowerShell DSC in a production environment. The first half of the session will be based on a project for deploying Hyper-V hosts on a larger scale leveraging PowerShell 4.0 and a local PowerShell DSC pull server. The second part will show how PowerShell DSC was integrated into a fully automated VM deployment solution, where PowerShell 5.0 is leveraged together with Azure Automation DSC as a pull server.

Less slides, more demos!

Slides, demos and recording of my PowerShell DSC session at the Nordic Infrastructure Conference 2015

On January 24th – 25th the Nordic Infrastructure Conference (NIC) was arranged in Oslo, Norway for the second time.
The goal for the conference is creating a premier event for all IT-professionals in the Nordics, and like the previous editions of NIC, this edition was also a great success with a number of excellent speakers.

I presented a session called “The State of PowerShell Desired State Configuration”:

The first version of Desired State Configuration (DSC), a new management platform in Windows PowerShell that enables deploying and managing configurations,  was released in Windows PowerShell 4.0. In this session you will see how DSC has evolved since then, and what`s coming in the next version which will be released later this year.

You can find the recording of the session on YouTube, while slides and demos is available on  OneDrive.

Recordings of all other sessions from the conference is available here.

Videos from Nordic Infrastructure Conference 2013

On January 24th – 25th the Nordic Infrastructure Conference (NIC) was arranged in Oslo, Norway for the second time. The goal for the conference is creating a premier event for all IT-professionals in the Nordics, and like the first edition of NIC, the second edition was also a great success with a number of excellent speakers. Featured speakers includes Jeffrey Snover, Wally Mead and Scott Schnoll.

I did a session together with my colleague at Crayon Norway, Ingar Kopperud, called “Configuration Manager 2012 – Automation using PowerShell”. In the session we provided an overview of the new Windows PowerShell module in Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 before we looked at automation of the initial configuration of a Configuration Manager infrastructure. After that we showed how to automate deployment of distribution points, before we ended the session by showing how to automate application deployment. The session was very demo focused, thus we had only 3 slides in our presentation. The slides is available here, while the video recording is available here.

Video recordings of all the other sessions at NIC 2013 is available here (there is a “click to view video” link for each session).
