IT Bookworm Free Book Chapter of the Week

Professional Windows PowerShell for Exchange Server 2007 SP1 by Wrox

This book is for Exchange professionals who want to learn how to use PowerShell to effectively manage, automate, and streamline their Exchange 2007 organization. This book walks you through the ins and outs of PowerShell, showing you how to take full advantage of this scripting language for deploying, configuring, managing, and maintaining your Exchange environment.

Xbox Contest

Now through the end of April, you can not only show off your IT skills by asking and answering questions on, but you can earn the chance to spend some quality time honing your bad-guy-vaporizing skills on your very own Xbox 360.

Through April 30th, you have a chance to win one of three Xbox 360 consoles. The winners will be the top 3 community members who have the most Knowledge Points earned and have asked 5 IT-related questions (you still earn Knowledge points for asking questions) during the contest period. Visit the blog post for full details on the prizes and contest rules.

We’re on LinkedIn!

We’ve recently created an IT Knowledge Exchange LinkedIn group. If you are a member of LinkedIn, come and join the group. You can network with your fellow members and continue the discussion. Visit the group here.

IT Blogger of the Week

This week’s featured blog is the Windows Virtualization Team Blog. In a time when technology is moving so fast, sometimes it pays to head straight to the source. On the Microsoft Virtualization Product Group’s team blog, you can stay abreast of the latest developments related to enterprise desktop virtualization, management tools, Hyper-V, and any other Microsoft virtualization products. The other nice thing about the blog — you are getting viewpoints from not only the managers, but the developers and testers as well.

Visit Microsoft’s Virtualization Team blog here.
