Short of walking around the Venetian shouting “anyone else like PowerShell”. I did everything i could to evangelize the product, and find likeminded individuals. The giant posh sticker on my laptop didn’t hurt in that regard. The one thing I did find when talking to these guys is they are starved for content. Sadly most of them knew only of the vmware community forums. Don’t get me wrong Lucd is amazing, but that is just a small piece of the community. I was very disappointed that neither Carter nor Dimitri Dmitry mentioned any of the resources out there for people.
I was however blown away by VMware and their commitment to the product. Quest manned a booth in VMware’s exhibit. For three days I never saw that booth empty. They were also handing out copies of powergui, some stickers, and a card… Hal you’ll be pleased to know that I saw many handed out, but not one on the floor. After the PowerShell session I was talking to a couple VI admins, and one of them recommended your book to me!
(Update: Don’t read into my post that I didn’t enjoy/value Carters presentation. I thought it was easily top five for me, and he made the case why VI admins need to learn PowerShell. My point was that once they start that journey. The more tools you provide the likeier they are to succeed! Oh yeah and sorry I mispelled your name Dmitry!)
