MMS Midwest Management Summit

Speaking at the Midwest Management Summit 2016 – Interview

Last year at the  Midwest Management Summit 2015 (MMS 2015) I had the chance to speak the second time at this event. In 2016 I am proud to announce that I will speak at the Midwest Management Summit 2016. This is the thired time I will speak at MMS, and together with Miike Ressler from Veeam Software I will speak about what’s new in Hyper-V 2016 and Nano Server.

The Midwest Management Summit is a 3-day conference purposely capped to just 600 attendees so that nobody gets lost in the crowd. Speakers have time to meet and talk to you. No rushing people out of a session to get the next speaker going. Time to absorb what you see and talk it over with speakers and other attendees. A true learning experience. Real networking. Real-life issues discussed.

This week I had the honor to speak with Lee Berg about my upcoming sessions at MMS 2016, where I will talk about Hyper-V, Nano Server, Containers and a lot of other great stuff.

The Midwest Management Summit 2016 will be held from 17-19. May in the Mall of America.

Azure Automation PowerShell ISE Add-on

Azure Automation PowerShell ISE add-on

Microsofts Joe Levy (Program Manager, Azure Automation) just announced in the blog post a new PowerShell ISE add-on for Azure Automation: Announcing the Azure Automation PowerShell ISE add-on. the Azure Automation PowerShell ISE add-on helps you if you are writing PowerShell runbooks for Azure Automation:

In Azure Automation, runbook authoring is typically done in the Azure portal, using our browser-based experience. However, in experimenting with ways to improve our runbook authoring process, we developed a new, open-source tool for runbook authoring – the (take a deep breath) Azure Automation PowerShell ISE add-on!

This project has been in the works for a while and is already used by many of our customers. Now we think it’s finally ready for more exposure and usage. We built this experience because we observed two things:

Our customers heavily use the PowerShell ISE when writing PowerShell
They even use the PowerShell ISE when writing runbooks, copy/pasting back and forth with the portal or importing/exporting with the PowerShell cmdlets
So we thought, why not create an Azure Automation experience that builds on top of this powerful tool? If you’re interested in speeding up your runbook authoring process using tools you’re already familiar with, we hope you’ll give the Azure Automation PowerShell ISE add-on a try!

Installation is very easy, you can get the Azure Automation PowerShell ISE add-on from the PowerShell Gallery:

Install the PowerShell Add-on:

If you want the PowerShell ISE to always automatically load the add-on:

If you just want to load the add-on if you need it run:
