This Thursday: Steven Murawski talks about and More!

11 01 2010

From his website: Steven Murawski

I’m the Director for Research and Development for ProPhoenix, a public safety software company. This position allows me to investigate new and existing technologies and incorporate them into our product line, with the end goal being to help public safety agencies to do their jobs more efficiently and safely.

I’m an advocate for PowerShell, as I believe it encourages administrative best practices and allows developers to provide additional access to their applications, without needing to explicitly write code for each administrative feature. Part of my advocacy for PowerShell includes my blog, appearances on various podcasts, and acting as a Community Director for PowerShellCommunity.Org

I’m also a co-host of Mind of Root (a weekly audio podcast about systems administration, tech news, and topics).  We stream our show live on on Wednesday evening at 8:30 PM CST.

Steven Murawski (@StevenMurawski on Twitter)is a friend-of-the-show and it’s about time we had him on! We plan on discussing and working with the Microsoft Sync Framework from PowerShell. Of course, if you join our live stream, then you will be able to post questions for Steven and help direct the discussion.

Tonight’s Guest: Clint Huffman

7 01 2010

Clint HuffmanOriginally from Dayton, OH. Clint joined Microsoft in 1999 supporting web technologies, Microsoft load testing tools, and later worked as a Testing Consultant helping people with load testing at the Microsoft Services Labs. There he found a passion for solving Windows performance issues. In 2006, he joined Microsoft Premier Field Engineering (PFE) team to take on BizTalk performance issues only to find that most issues could be diagnosed by analyzing operating system resources. Some may say that performance analysis of Windows is more of an art than a science. Well, Clint strives to make it as much of a science as possible and to bring it to the masses. Clint is probably best known for the Performance Analysis of Logs (PAL) tool, which simplifies the analysis of performance monitor logs. He is an author of many of the BizTalk performance guides on MSDN and recently spoke at Tech Ed 2008 on BizTalk performance analysis. He currently lives in Marysville, WA which is about 40 miles north of Seattle.


We will start recording at 9:30 PM EST as usual (more or less), but Cliff won’t be joining us until around 10:30.

Recording *Tonight* with Jeff Atwood!

17 11 2009

We are very excited to welcome Jeff Atwood, perhaps better known as @codinghorror on Twitter, to the podcast tonight.

Jeff has an extremely popular blog at where he discusses software development best practices. In addition, he is one of the masterminds behind StackOverflow and ServerFault, two very important websites for PowerShell hackers.

It should be a great interview, Jeff is a very dynamic speaker as you already know if you listen to the StackOverflow podcast.

P.S. Sorry for the schedule change, Thursday was blocked out by a higher power.
