We recently had the November User Group Meeting for Perth in Decemeber. Yeah, we like to do interesting things like that ;-)
Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict at Microsoft Perth, we had moved our meeting from the end of November, to the beginning of December which inadvertantly caused a conflict with the .NET Community of Practice UG. This was a shame as there were a few members from the .NET UG who were keen to attend. In future we’re aiming for week 3 each month, which should prevent this happening.
Anyway, what made this a fun evening was that we had three presenters, all from different locations: Jame’s O’Neill (Microsoft Evangelist UK) from the UK, Shane Hoey (PowerShell User Group Australia), from Brisbane, and myself from Perth.
We had a modest turn out in the Microsoft Office’s in Perth as well as a few people logged into Live Meeting. We had a few technical issues, which is to be expected from a UG still finding it’s feet! Though nothing like the running battles Richard Siddaway used to have when I was in the UK!
Apparently editing the Live Meeting media file to clean it up results in an exponential increase in the files size. Seeing as it’s being made availble over the net it would seem like a good idea to keep it as small as possible, so I’ve take Marco Shaw’s advise and will make it available live, raw and unedited.
A summary of the session:
Adam Bell – Introductions (0m – 1m)
Adam Bell – 10 useful PowerShell Tricks (5m 5s – 26m)
James O’Neill – Managing Hyper-V (35m 50s -1h 32m)
Shane Hoey – Windows 7 PowerPack (1h 09m 25s – 1h 30m 05s)
Okay. We experienced a few issues, learnt a few things (like my wireless mike sleeping when not being used!) so the recording is a little raw. Hopefully, you’ll be able to see past that and find something in there that was interesting.
I’ve had a couple of requests so I’ll post my presentation up as a session in a few days and detail my demo’s.
