Everybody in the PowerShell knows MoW aka the PowerShell Guy, aka Marc Van Orsouw. Either you have used one of his tools like Powertab or WMI Explorer, he’s answered one of your forum postings or you’ve read one of his blog posts to find some information about PowerShell or solve a problem. He is also crazy fun to be around, he had me in tears of laughter back at the PowerShell community dinner in Barcelona last year mainly because he instigated this which happened at the next morning’s PowerShell session with Jeffrey Snover.
One of the most interesting aspects and main reasons I started the podcasting was the opportunity to meet and speak with interesting people. Within the PowerShell community there are lots of people highly enthusiastic about this particular area of technology. Recently Alan Renouf and I were able to talk with Shay Levy (unfortunately we couldn’t meet him since we live in different countries) who is one of the most active members of the PowerShell community.
On the Get-Scripting Podcast we recently caught up with Scott Herold from Quest / Vizioncore whom Alan had attempted to record an interview with at the recent VMWorld conference, but unfortunately (or fortunately depending on which way you look at it) they ran out of time because Scott spent so much time demoing his new project the Virtualization EcoShell Initiative since it was proving incredibly popular. So when they both got home we hooked up over Skype and had a lot of fun recording the interview that way instead.
So we got Episode 6 of the Get-Scripting Podcast out last week. You can get it from here: Download it here, subscribe in iTunes or via a different feed reader Normally Alan, Matt and I all arrange to be in the same place to record the show. Given we live in completely different places in the UK this is not easy and is probably the main reason we keep it to one show per month.
This is a must watch PowerScripting Podcast special - the hint is in the title. Jeffrey Snover and Bruce Payette are the two guests, it should be an awesome show. Thursday 18th Dec 9pm EST, which translates to 2am UK time. I think I’m going to have to stay up for it!
We had a lot of fun recording the latest episode of the Get-Scripting podcast on Tuesday night. Its been great having Alan join the show, gives the show a much more conversational feel plus I don’t have to come up with all the content. :-) We had a really interesting interview in this episode with Dmitry Sotnikov talking about the Quest AD cmdlets and PowerGUI - go check it out.
Welcome to the new home for my blogging. As explained over on the get-scripting podcast blog, I decided to seperate the podcast from my own personal ramblings which will from now on be here, the get-scripting site will be used for podcast stuff only.
