See GoateePFE Live or On-Demand Talking about Active Directory PowerShell

Whew.  This has been a busy season for speaking, blogging, and recording.  I’ve spent more time on airplanes than in my office at home for the last few months.  It’s all good, and I want to share it with you.

Here are some places you can find me online, on stage, and on camera…


Microsoft Virtual Academy

Microsoft Virtual Academy: Using PowerShell for Active Directory – October 29

This is exciting! After four years of blogging about Active Directory PowerShell I finally get to show you all my tricks in one day of free video training. We are offering the first four modules as a half-day live jumpstart event, and I will be in the chat room to answer your questions between modules. Then we are offering four bonus modules to stream afterward. PowerShell MVP Jason Helmick will co-host this fun event. Here are the AD PowerShell topics:

  • Introduction
  • User and Groups
  • Queries
  • Forensics
  • Stale Objects
  • Replication
  • Recovery
  • Deployment

I can’t wait to share this event with you. I have built extra secret demos that you have never seen before on my blog or at any conference presentations I have given. I guarantee everyone from beginners to seasoned scripters will pick up new techniques in this free training.

Live 360: TechMentor Orlando 2014 – November 17-21

Imagine a buffet of five IT conferences at the same time. Live360 will include Visual Studio, SharePoint, SQL, Windows Server, and more! I will deliver two sessions at the TechMentor portion of the event next month:

  • Oh Snap! Active Directory Attribute-level Recovery when the AD Recycle Bin Cannot Help
  • Migrate GPOs from One Domain/Forest to Another Using PowerShell

I really like the intimate feeling of the TechMentor conferences. They are not over-crowded. You have lots of time to interact with speakers and network with attendees. See PowerShell MVPs like Don Jones and Jeffery Hicks!

I would love to meet you in person at this event. Go here for more information or to register.


Premier Workshop Library on Demand

Microsoft Premier Workshop Library on Demand

As a Microsoft Premier Field Engineer I teach many PowerShell workshops. Traditionally this has been classroom work, but over the last few years we have expanded our online offerings. We teach live remote workshops over Lync and use cloud-hosted labs. We also record training videos for you to stream on your schedule.

We call the online training videos Education as a Service and have given it the brand name Premier Workshop Library on Demand.  Check out a YouTube video explaining it here.

This photo is from a recent recording with my peer, Gary Siepser.  We recorded our latest PowerShell workshop offering Windows PowerShell v4.0 for the IT Professional, Part 1.  We will be shooting part two in November.  Yes, you can get full-length, quality PowerShell training directly from Microsoft via streaming video at your convenience.
