Slides and Demo Scripts from Azure CLI 2.0 Tips and Tricks Session at #GlobalAzureBootCamp

I had the opportunity over the weekend to speak at the Global Azure Bootcamp organized by local Microsoft user groups. This event was held at ABB office in Bangalore and I must say that they have done a splendid job. It was a very well organized event. I had only one session and it was about Azure CLI 2.0 Tips and Tricks. I mentioned earlier that I am using CLI mostly these days to work with Azure resources and in this session I shared some tips and tricks around making it easier to work with Azure resource management using Azure CLI 2.0. The demo scripts I used for this session can be downloaded from https://github.com/rchaganti/Presentations/tree/master/GAB2019-BLR

Session Slides: Tests Driven PowerShell Learning using PSKoans

At today’s Bangalore IT Pro and PowerShell Bangalore User Group (PSBUG) event, I had the opportunity to showcase the PSKoans module by Joel Sallow. This module has a set of Pester tests that you have to fix as you proceed in your efforts towards mastering PowerShell. I have found this method engaging and decided that I must show this to the community. After this session on PSKoans, I did live coding and streamed it live on Twitch (and did not realize that it was without audio :((). I fixed a function in my PSWindowsAdminCenter module and added a new function.
