The speaker will be Mark Minasi, a best-selling author, popular technology columnist, commentator, keynote speaker, and IT consultant. He is a well known IT professional and speaker who has lent his support to the Information Systems security Association of Hampton Roads throughout the years and we are more than pleased to have him speak again this year. He will be presenting on the topic of PowerShell.

Here is some information on his presentation:

For many IT pros, our days start with the same activity:  surfing to catch up.  We skim our Twitter feeds, view and perhaps download The Picture of the Day from some amazing photo site, check the weather, peek at eBay to see if that prized item is selling under $100 yet, or whatever.  That’s great, but what isn’t so great is the fact that most of us are gathering those data the same way we’ve been doing it for it for twenty years — by clicking around in a web browser.  Hey, it’s the 21st century, and IT pros hoping to remain employed are automating things, so it’s time to turn The Robot Hand of PowerShell to our daily web data-gathering tasks, whether personal- or business-related.  In this talk, Mark introduces web browsing the PoSH way… even if you don’t know PowerShell!
