Let’s start over…

Many times over I thought about what I should be blogging about.

PowerShell’s the future and I really like everything PowerShell related, so a theme for the blog was ‘easy’.
Howeverย I’m not really a front runner when it comes to IT, so most of the things I’d be playing with have been done before.

I’d get stuck on what to write about, because surely no one would be interested in ‘another basic PowerShell blog’.
Writing doesn’t come naturally to me and English is not my native language, so transferring thoughts to a blog post can be challenging.
Besides that I normally overthink whatever I write, causing a ‘simple’ blog post to take me hours if not days.

What changed?

In 2018 I had a few breakthroughs that jump-started my love for PowerShell again:

All in all, I’m coding more and more again, finding new reasons to look into it and wanting to share my findings with others.

What does this mean for the blog?

Well, besides an updated colour scheme and logo, I want to grow through teaching more and attending/speaking at more seminars.

But I won’t just blog about PowerShell anymore.
I’ll try and write more about various things, such as other technologies I’m playing with [PowerShell related or not], share interesting articles/tweets that I’ve read.

This should mean some posts will be shorter than ‘normal’, but I’m hoping that like with coding,ย  writing more will help me become a better writer.
Possibly it will even help me create content more easily.

All in all, let’s start writing again ๐Ÿ™‚

Quick Tip – Find available versions on .wim files

Just a quick tip for personal reference [as I keep forgetting it ๐Ÿ™‚ ].

You can easily find out which versions of the Windows OS are available on an install.wim file [generally found within a Windows ISO file] using the following command:

This will provide you both the Index number as well as the name of the version.
It can come in handy when using other tools, such as [in my case] Convert-WindowsImage

Happy Scripting! ๐Ÿ™‚

DuPSUG Basics – Deux

Today was another great day with other PowerShell enthousiasts where I got to share some tricks of the trade.

During DuPSUG’s second Basics event, I was once again able to provide a session, this time about “Improving your Scripts”.

I had a blast and I hope others did too and as promised I’ve made my code available on GitHub on the general DuPSUG GitHub.

 

I’d like to thank all the people attending today’s session for your time and patience, all other speakers for sharing their time, code and tricks and of course @EJHeeres for arranging the event perfectly.

Hope to see you again soon and happy scripting! ๐Ÿ™‚
