Session Slides: Experts Live India – PowerShell Data as File System

I had the opportunity to speak at the inaugural edition of Experts Live India 2019 over the weekend. It was a great experience. The organizers did a great job even when there were teething facilities issues that plagued the event right from the start. I had planned only for one session at the event but as some international speakers could not make it to the event, I was asked to take up one more session and I chose to show the audience SHiPS module. Hierarchical data can be read as a file system in PowerShell using SHiPS open source module. In this session, I walked the audience through what are providers and what is the advantage of implementing PowerShel providers using the SHiPS module.   Once again, the slides do not contain great deal of information since I wanted to make this more of a demo based session. The demo scripts are available at https://github.com/rchaganti/Presentations/tree/master/ExpertsLiveIN2019/PSDataAsFileSystem.

Session Slides: Experts Live India – Azure at the command line

I had the opportunity to speak at the inaugural edition of Experts Live India 2019 over the weekend. It was a great experience. The organizers did a great job even when there were teething facilities issues that plagued the event right from the start. My first session was on Azure at the command line. In this session, I walked through both Az CLI 2.0 and Az PowerShell modules and explained the differences to help the audience choose the right tool for their job. The slides do not contain a huge deal of information as I preferred showing the audience a good demo to understand the differences.   The demo scripts are available at https://github.com/rchaganti/Presentations/tree/master/ExpertsLiveIN2019/AzCommandline.  

Azure CLI 2.0 Cookbook

As I moved into the PowerShell space and started focusing only on Microsoft platform, I lost touch with the Unix and Linux world. However, when I started using Azure CLI 2.0, I just fell in love. It re-introduced me to shell scripting world which I loved a lot. While working my way towards mastering Azure CLI 2.0, I wrote quite a few shell scripts for managing various Azure Services. This triggered the thought that I can easily make them as recipes and write a cookbook to show how to use those recipes while explaining the concepts of Azure CLI and shell scripting. I sat on this for a while but I, finally, had the time to complete an outline and start working towards publishing the content. I will be self-publishing this on leanpub.com and I have not decided on a price yet. There is a landing page that you can visit and indicate your interest and propose a price point as well. I will make the pricing public once I have at least 3 to 4 chapters …

In my session, I will walk through these options and provide my views on choosing the right tool for your task at hand. Registration for the event is open and it is free!
