This coming Monday, November 14th , PowerShell will have been shipping for 10 years, so the team is going to celebrate with a day-long event, running from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm (PST). This will be streaming live and shown world-wide on the home page for Channel9.msdn.com.

We’ll have segments on PowerShell and SQL, PowerShell and Azure Automation, and the future directions for PowerShell, and … well you get the idea. In addition, we’re planning several presentations showing cool ways of using PowerShell, including setting up a Minecraft server, using PowerShell to control sprinklers or an IOT-based Theramin, and managing a Tesla (among other things).

There will also be opportunities to hear the team members talk about how the product has evolved, and some of the MVPs talk about community involvement and the new open source engagement.

The events and agenda are listed on Channel9.

In addition to our presentations, we will be running a set of Code-Golf contests. If you aren’t familiar with the concept, in Code-Golf people try to reproduce what a script does, using fewer characters to do that than the original author. It’s a fun opportunity to show your PowerShell coding skills, and we will award some cute prizes to the winners.

You can join at any time, stay and participate in the coding contests, or come back later for any of the talks above. This is going out on Channel9.msdn.com, so the talks will be available later – even if they aren’t quite as much fun as hearing us live.

So join us at 8:00am (PST) for the kickoff by Jeffrey Snover and Kenneth Hansen for the PowerShell 10th Anniversary Celebration!
