Tonight, I had the honor of hosting the Northern California Powershell Users Group in San Francisco. The topic was using Azure with Powershell.
For those of you who were there, a lot of conversation revolved around provisioning and managing Azure and I wanted to mention that Microsoft (via Technet Events) just finished up a round of IT Camps for Azure IaaS.
At those events, attendees build out a dev/test environment in Azure and while most of the lab guide detailed everything out with using the GUI, there was a bonus challenge at the end that included doing everything with Powershell.
If you are looking to start using Azure with Powershell and want a good place to start experimenting, I suggest getting a free Azure Trial and then downloading the lab manual to give it a shot yourself. You can find a copy of the lab manual at http://aka.ms/SlidesPlus under the “Azure Camp – Fall 2013” folder.
You’ll find the “Challenge Exercise” and instructions on where to find the necessary Powershell, towards the end of the manual.
