PowerShell and MEMCM Automation - Get Your Head Out Of The Console
Feedback form is now closed.
There are no doubt tasks that you do on a repeated basis that just eat away hours of your day. You get a list of users from some other team and they ask you to create a collection to deploy content. You update your base image with the latest updates. You're standing up a new distribution point and retiring another. You're regularly creating applications in the exact same way with just the metadata being a little bit different.

While not everything is ripe for automation if it's worth doing more than once, it might be worth looking at ways to outsource your work to scripts. Of course, with any venture like this, there are good ways and bad ways to slice it. Join us as we talk about different things that we have automated and the lessons we've learned along the way.

What you will learn:
  • Repeatable tasks that almost everyone does
  • Things to avoid when automating
  • Modules to help you along the way
  • Sharing is caring - contributing to already existing automation scripts
