Last weekend at SharePoint Saturday Virginia Beach (website) I was asked by Christian Buckley (twitter) from Axceler (website) to do a short video for his “The One Thing You Need To Know About SharePoint 2010” video series. Below is the video.
When Christian asked me to do this video I was in a time crunch to make it to the airport for my flight home. I was literally running out the door right after we finished. As a result I was rushed in my response which led to my funny line at the end about “being a better person.” If I had more time I would’ve talked about how PowerShell now gives SharePoint admins native support for installing, configuring, and managing a 2010 farm with commandlets. Also mentioning the benefits of PowerShell over STSADM such as being object oriented, having a consistent syntax, including a better help system, and integrating with other systems. Since I wasn’t able to fit those in, at least I was funny right?
