Up Next: Brandon Shell talks about Active Directory in PowerShell V2

17 03 2009

We’ve had Brandon on the show before, so you know this will be a good one.  This time, Brandon will give us the scoop on what is new from Microsoft on managing Active Directory in PowerShell V2. While Brandon is a PowerShell MVP, Active Directory is his real specialty, so he’ll be able to go as deep into the details as we let him.

We can’t do this interview alone! We need you to attend PowerScripting Live this Thursday, March 19th at 9pm EDT so that we can pepper Brandon with some great AD questions from the audience.

Up Next: PrimalScript 2009 with Alex & Jeff from SAPIEN

9 03 2009

Wow, we are so used to twitter, we just said all that needed saying in under 140 characters. 🙂

On this week’s show we will have Alex Riedel and Jeffrey Hicks from SAPIEN on to talk about PrimalScript 2009 and PrimalTools. Please join us at the usual Bat-Time of 9 Eastern (we’re on summer time now, watch out for that) this Thursday.

And lastly, we want to apologize for no show last week.  A combination of things made production difficult, so we decided we had to bail.
