Last weekend I had a great time at SharePoint Friday/Saturday Denver 2011 – all the folks who helped organize the event did a fantastic job (and I have to say, it was nice this year not being one of the organizers as I was able to just enjoy the event for once which makes me appreciate their efforts even more). So, at the event I presented two talks, one on PowerShell (of course) and the other was the presentation I gave at the SharePoint Conference in Anaheim last month. The PowerShell talk was a new talk that I’d never done before and it was basically just a bunch of random tips that I’ve found useful over the years. My apologies to those who attended my sessions last weekend for not making these available sooner but I figure better late than never. Anyways, here’s the links to the decks – enjoy!
I recently presented at the SharePoint Saturday Denver event where I, rather rapidly, went through some SharePoint 2010 PowerShell stuff - the presentation was not meant as a general PowerShell overview but instead assumed that you already had at least a basic knowledge of PowerShell in general so that we could focus on SharePoint specific things. In the presentation I went over how to find the SharePoint cmdlets, threading and disposal issues, usage scenarios, remoting, and building custom cmdlets. There was a ton of information but we managed to get through all of it and only ran about 5 minutes over.
If you're interested in viewing the slide deck you can download it here: PowerShell_with_SharePoint_2010.pptx
I've embedded the demo script that I used during the talk as well. If you look in the notes on the first slide and on the remoting slide you'll see the PowerShell that I went through during the demo. The farm creation and site structure creation scripts can be found in my previous posts.
For those that attended and are wondering how I got the demos to work without having to type check out this post on the PowerShell team blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/powershell/archive/2007/06/03/new-and-improved-start-demo.aspx.
