Summary of 2nd Dutch PowerShell User Group – DuPSUG meeting with additional resources

Future events

Before starting with my summary of 2nd DuPSUG meeting, I want to inform you about some future events first:

  • Dutch PowerShell User Group Meetings
    • To keep track of news, use the links  to LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and the RSS feed on the DUPSUG website.
    • In the future, the plan is to meet every June and November.
    • The next meeting will probably be at November 7th at VX Company.
    • The idea is that community members will also present their own experiences, use cases, scripts, tools, methods. If you want to do so, please contact the DUPSUG group.
      • Remko Weijnen | Blog | Twitter | LinkedIn might be one of the people presenting at a future DUPSUG meeting.
    • Jeff Wouters might be able to arrange one or more copies of the PowerShell Deep Dives book from Manning since he’s contributing to it. The book isn’t complete and released yet, but Manning has an Early Access Program which means that you will get access to the completed chapters now and will get the full version when it’s done. Until June 13 there’s even a promotion to get a 40%-50% discount and it also applies to other great PowerShell books.
  • Inter Access Microsoft Summer Summit (Hilversum, July 2nd 2013 17:30-22:00 CET)

This event

Last Thursday I attended the second Dutch Powershell User Group meeting in Hilversum hosted at Inter Access and sponsored by Sapien Technologies Inc.

Just like I mentioned in the summary of the first meeting there were manu interesting sessions that provided me with more insight and inspired me for practical uses. It was also great to discuss current developments with other knowledgeable and passionate people. The main differences with the previous meeting was that:

  • This meeting was completely in Dutch, while the previous one was completely in English. As such, the workshop descriptions were also in Dutch and you needed to bring your own laptop.
  • The format of this meeting was more of a workshop, while the previous one was mainly presentations.

Thanks go out to all attendees, especially those presenting, organizing and sponsoring the event. Special thanks to Daniel Bot for helping me fix a (stupid mistake in a) script I was working on 🙂

Goodies and giveaways

Workshops / presentations

And now on with the really interesting stuff, the sessions/workshops. Below are the sessions with some info about the speakers and their sessions. I also added notes I took and other information I looked up afterwards. If you come across any errors or have comments, please leave a reply so I can fix it.

Starting my new job at Open Line today

After having worked at my previous employer for five years, it was time for a change of scenery. For me it had been clear for some time that Open Line was THE company I wanted to work for. I decided to follow my dream and did not even bother to look at other companies anymore.

Main motivators for me for wanting to work for Open Line are:

  • The people that work there are friendly, very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do.
  • There’s a “can do” mentality.
  • They work with modern technologies.
  • Potential for personal growth and learning many new things on many different levels.
  • Both colleagues and customers are considered to be partners.
  • They have good and close relations with many other well-known (ICT) companies and have won various awards along the way because of it.
  • Their values closely match my own values.
  • I want to be able to work for a company I truly care about, believe in and where I’m able to give it my all without any reservations or doubt.
  • They’re growing.
  • In my opinion they possess many of the characters of a High Performance Organization (HPO).

As such I made my intentions clear to a friend of mine who works there and I applied for the job opening of Microsoft Specialist. What followed was (in my opinion) a thorough procedure to see if we were both a good fit for each other. And according to the both of us, this was the case.

I look forward to starting today, and I will especially enjoy meeting new interesting people and catching up with the people I already know (those who attended the same school and those I met at my previous employer).
