Free event: TechDays Defy All Challenges

On April 1st, 2009, Microsoft is putting on a free 24-hour virtual event called TechDays Defy All Challenges. This is a developer-focused event.

I'm proud to be presenting "Scripting the .NET Framework using Windows PowerShell". I'm going to be doing a 60 minute presentation on Windows PowerShell that will show how to access the .NET Framework. I'll also spend a small percentage talking about PowerShell v2.

Now that PowerShell is part of the Microsoft Common Engineering Criteria. Expect to see more and more PowerShell in Microsoft's server products. This session will look at how PowerShell can be used to directly access the .NET Framework. Some simple examples will be demonstrated, but also more advanced examples of using WPF (.NET 3.0), and LINQ (.NET 3.5) will be discussed.
