Missed the Microsoft Ignite 2016?

Don’t be sad! Smile

In case you’ve missed the Microsoft Ignite conference this year (like me Smile), all of its content is available online! You can visite the conference homepage (https://ignite.microsoft.com/) and catch video streams and…

… even better – there is a PowerShell script that can help you download the videos and slides of about 570 Ignite sessions!!! How cool is that???

Script was made by Michel de Rooij and Mattias Fors, and can be found here (read the “help” section to figure out what you need and how to use it).

When launched (properly), it looks something like this:

Happy downloading, watching and learning! Smile

Cheers!

P.S. With the script alone, you’ll need the YouTube downloader utility available here (it actually says so in the script’s “help”, but who reads the documentation, right? Smile).

Hyper-V best practices at KulenDayz 2016

It’s that time of the year again – conference time! Smile

First of the conferences I was at was the KulenDayz 2016 conference. I love KulenDayz! So many nice people, friends, colleagues, MVPs and kids gathering at awesome (and relaxed) sessions, enjoying wonderful nature (and food). Smile

This year I’ve had the honor to speak about Hyper-V best practices – I’ve tried to gather the most of best practices around Hyper-V deployments that I’ve seen/learned/done over the years in an easy 50-minute session. Considering the reactions from the attendees and other speakers, it was a great session! (thank you all!)

As every one of us has hers/his best practices around Hyper-V, I’m expecting your comments, thoughts and corrections… we are all learning from each other!

Session slides have been uploaded to SlideShare:


Big thanks to the organizers for another great KulenDayz experience!!!

Next conference is Mobility Day 2016, which is in about two weeks. I’ll be speaking about something completely different – Citrix XenMobile and NetScaler. Fun times!

Cheers!

WinDays 12 – afterword…

So… another year, another WinDays conference is over… In short, it was fun (as always).

This year (like the year before), I was in charge of preparing the lab environment for almost all of the workshops happening at Centar Znanja – this was intense but also fun…

This year, at Wednesday, I had a session about Windows 8 deployment, called “A što je s klijentima?”. Session was early in the morning, but from my perspective, attendance was great, session was also OK (those who attended can say more about it Smile)!

I was using Windows Server “8” Beta as the basis for my lab, was deploying Windows “8” Consumer Preview with Windows ADK, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2012 and System Center Configuration Manager 2012. My lab wouldn’t be possible without the support of my “sponsor” – Kodeks, who provided me with the new, 12th generation Dell PowerEdge R720 server (thank you guys for this one!). I can say that this is indeed a fine piece of machinery, wish to have couple of these for all of my demos & workshops (Smile)…

I also had a workshop called “Build your private cloud in 3 hours” at Thursday (with my colleague Marin) which was fun – early morning, half of the room full, lots of work to be done… it was a success!

Photos (thanks to Romeo & Bojana):

Again, thanks to everyone who attended my session and workshop (or was planning to attend but was recovering from “yesterday” Smile); hope to hear from you & see you next year at WinDays 13!
