Keynote Presentation by: Tim Mangan

A Walk-through of a real-world example of PowerShell to automate VM Management and application packaging

Tim ManganThe Windows ADK for the 1703 release includes PowerShell based scripts for automation in a Hyper-V environment. Although intended for App-V packaging, these scripts make a great example for general automation of VMs including the following:

  • OS Image creation
  • Unattended VM creation and OS installation
  • Creating a local account in the VM and enabling remote management
  • Setting VM Parameters (ex: memory, CPU, NIC, AutoStart)
  • Creating a checkpoint
  • Reverting and starting the VM
  • Copying files into the VM and injecting commands

Event Information

We will focus on Automating via PowerShell but also cover DevOps practices, Containers, Windows Server 2016 Nano and how Azure helps deliver and leverage all of these technologies. There will be a fee to cover expenses (USB drives, Drawing prizes, Snacks, Drinks, Lab Guides, etc.) (equivalent to other all day classes for $1200).  Wow, we landed a great partner and sponsor, Microsoft!  As a result, we are now able to offer a new reduced Price,  $25.00!!!! (was $50).  Still looking for other sponsors too :)
