I’ve just come back from Seattle where I have been on Global MVP Summit 2008.
Microsoft spoke about new technologies, about new products, about plans and visions.
I have been on many sessions, and I’d like to say what I see as of the highest importance.
If you are Network or Systems Administrator and dealing with Windows environment, you SHOULD start to learn and using PowerShell (if you already not doing so ). An absolutely every new program / system from Microsoft supports PowerShell, I remember just one exception, Windows 2008 Core. We cannot install and use PowerShell on Windows 2008 Core box, but we can manage and control Windows 2008 Core by using PowerShell on other Windows 2008, Vista or even Windows XP machines.
I’ll try to speak more about PowerShell and I’ll show how PowerShell can serve us in our daily stuff. If you want to do any script and consider about doing it in PowerShell, VB or simple Batch file, I suggest to do it in PowerShell. I’ll try to assist you as much as I could.
