It only took 7 days for 70 tickets to be sold.
To all that didn’t get a ticket: Sorry, better luck next time!
I remember when we had our first meeting, with Ed Wilson (MSFT Scripting Guys) as our ‘main attraction’ and it took almost 3 months to sell 35 tickets.
Only 3 years later, the PowerShell community has grown considerably in The Netherlands.
We even have a ticket registered to an American (Texas) lady that lives in Germany.
We have some Belgians coming over…
Not even to mention all the expats that live in The Netherlands that have registered.
To see this adoption and of PowerShell and the community around is makes me happy.
This is what I started the user group for!
So I want to thank all past, current and future attendees / speakers / sponsors for making all of this possible… Thank you!
See you at the meeting!
On behalf of DuPSUG,
Last Tuesday we posted the announcement and registration link for the 6th DuPSUG meeting on this blog…
And yesterday, so after only 6 days, we were sold out!
That means 55 people, almost an average of 9 per day, registered for our meeting.
So, you haven’t got your tickets but still want to attend?
We’ve just made another 15 tickets available… so be quick to register!
After those 15 are also gone, we won’t be able to share more tickets because the room simply won’t allow for more visitors.
It is about time for a new meeting, so here we are.
In the world of IT it is good to keep up to speed with new technologies, of which PowerShell used to be one. These days it has become more of a commodity and a required skill for automation.
The technology to invest in for your future? We feel that Desired State Configuration fits that bill.
So for this meeting, on the 26th of May, we’ll offer you an entire day filled with DSC, OneGet and much more!
Note that all sessions will be in English…
Here is the agenda:
Introduction: 09:00 – 09:30
Time: 09:30 – 10:30
Speaker: Jeff Wouters
Abstract: OneGet is a package manager manager. No, that is not a typo.
Package managers, such as NuGet offer the ability to manage packages. But there are more package managers in this world than just NuGet. OneGet is about providing a single way to manage them all, hence the name package manager manager. During this session we will show you considerations you need to make before the implementation, show you how to implement OneGet and configure it appropriately.
Coffee break (10:30 – 10:45)
Time: 10:45 – 11:45
Speaker: Bartek Bielawski
Title: Home-made partial configurations in WMF4 using AST
Abstract: Do you like the segregation of configuration that you get with partial configurations, but you are stuck with WMF 4? In this session Bartek will share practical implementation that allows for similar model without updating WMF to the “latest and greatest”. Separate scripts for each configuration level with some Abstract Syntax Tree (AST) magic will do the work for us.
Time: 11:45 – 12:45
Speaker: Ben Gelens
Title: Lessons learned: Introducing DSC Configuration into an existing environment
Abstract: In this session we look at my lessons learned on how to introduce DSC into existing environments. The session handles topics like security, resource compatibility and integration into deployment methods.
Lunch break (12:45 – 13:45) sponsored by Inovativ
Time: 13:45 – 14:45
Speaker: Jeff Wouters
Title: DSC, OMI, DAL and DevOps – Going beyond the technology
Abstract: This session will not be technical, but a conceptual session about the DevOps, Desired State Configuration and the road Microsoft has taken in the last decade to make all of this possible.
This session will be highly interactive.
Time: 14:45 – 15:45
Speaker: Bartek Bielawski
Title: DSC for Linux
Abstract: Remember OMI session Bartek did last year? If yes, than he has a surprise for you: OMI is not designed to manage only Linux processes (and find unicorns). It’s a platform that other solutions can build on. Linux DSC is a perfect example of that approach. This session is all about this relationship and opportunities it brings for IT people that would like to use PowerShell to manage systems.
Coffee break (15:45 – 16:00)
Time: 16:00 – 16:30
Speaker: Jeff Wouters (Methos)
Subject: Announcing Methos MONK.
Time: 16:00 – 18:00
Subject : Talk about PowerShell solutions in the market.
Dinner (18:00 – 19:00) sponsored by Methos
Speaker: Jeffrey Snover
Title: Overview Build/Ignite announcements and Q&A
Abstract: I’ll start with a brief overview of some amazing Build/Ignite announcements and maybe some demos but then I’ll turn it over to Q&A. We’ll use a method that I’ve using with internal teams that has worked very well. I’ll collect all the questions up front and then try to weave together an overall narrative which answers the questions. Come with questions about topics not bugs (it won’t be a support session).
The event will be hosted at Inovativ, Startbaan 8 in Amstelveen.
There is free parking at the location, but be aware that ‘full is full’.
Call to action: If you’re attending, please send any questions you have for Jeffrey Snover to email@example.com before the 20th of May!
Date: 26th of May 2015
Time: 09:00 – 20:30+
