April Meeting with Jason Helmick and Ed Wilson

Posted by Lido Paglia on March 25, 2013

Please join us on Thursday, April 4th when Jason Helmick will present an overview of PowerShell Studio from Sapien. Following Jason’s demo of PowerShell Studio we’ll be joining up with the Charlotte PowerShell User Group via Microsoft Lync where Ed Wilson, The Scripting Guy, will be Presenting. We’re excited to join The Scripting Guy in Charlotte and video of his talk will be made available through our public Lync meeting. If for some reason you can’t join us in person you’re more than welcome to join remotely.

The Scripting Guy will be presenting “Use PowerShell to manage the remote Windows 8 Workstation”:

There are three different ways to manage a remote Windows 8 workstation. The first is to use WMI remoting, the second is to use the computername cmdlets and the third is to use WinRm and Windows PowerShell native remoting. Each approach has advantages and disadvantages for the network administrator. In this session, I will examine each approach, and provide a checklist of criteria to aid the enterprise network administrator in choosing the appropriate technology for a variety of real world scenarios. This presentation combines live demo’s and interactive discussion to heighten learning.
