VMworld PowerCLI–What to expect

Last years sessions by Luc and I had to be the highlight of my year and judging by the comments and scores we received it didn’t go down that badly with the attendees either.  So this year we want to “raise the bar”, we have some fantastic sessions planned and hope you will come and see some of the things we have organised.

If i had to use one word to describe our sessions this year it would be “Super”, after you have seen the sessions you will understand why.

So to give you an idea of what we have planned we decided to give you a quick outline of the sessions and also a mention of the other PowerShell and PowerCLI based sessions at VMworld….

imageIn this session Alan and Luc will show you a number of tips, tricks and gotchas they discovered on their long journey through PowerCLI land.

This session will not be a PowerCLI introduction, visit the “PowerCLI 101” session by Cody and Glenn for a good intro.  The Best Practices session will show you how to avoid many of the common pitfalls on your path to PowerCLI glory.

Some questions this session will answer:

  • How do I schedule my scripts and make sure they will run ?
  • What’s up with these hidden vSphere folders ?
  • How to make my script fast, faster, fastest ?
  • How to customize your PowerCLI objects ?
