Slides and Pictures from PowerShell Saturday Columbus 2012

On March 10th, 2012 the first ever PowerShell Saturday conference took place in Columbus, OH and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.  We had 100 attendees from 10 different states (the biggest surprise to me) come to see 6 speakers present on a variety of PowerShell topics: introduction, WMI, SharePoint, Active Directory, Exchange, 3rd party products and more.



A big thank you also goes out to a number of people.

Planning committee



  • Lisa Gardner, fellow Microsoft PFE volunteered her time on a Saturday to assist with smooth operation of the day

Facility Coordination

  • Debbie Carrier, facilities coordinator for the Columbus Microsoft Office and helped us out greatly with the venue


Slides and Script Samples

I presented my session on “PowerShell for the SharePoint 2010 Developer”.  Below you can download the slides and script samples.



I wasn’t able to take took many pictures (only 3) as I was busy doing my presentation, answering questions, and taking care of random items throughout the day.

I’m very happy that this first ever PowerShell Saturday was a success.  My fellow PFE and speaker Ashley McGlone also has a short write-up on his blog about the event (click here).  I have heard rumors that there are other cities starting to plan their own local events.  When I hear more details I’ll spread the word here and on Twitter.
