There seems to have been a bit of confusion regarding the European PowerShell Summit as the site will tell you that registration is currently unavailable.
There isn't a problem and the Summit HAS NOT sold out at this time. We just haven't opened registration yet.
Registration will open on 15 July 2014
Steve Murawski gave three exceptional sessions on using DSC at the recent PowerShell summit.
The videos of those sessions can be found here -

The PowerShell Summit is the number one place where PowerShell enthusiasts gather and learn from each other in fast-paced, knowledge packed presentations. Experts from all over the world including MVP’s, Guru’s, and PowerShell team members, join together for a few days to discuss and learn how to maximize using PowerShell in the workplace.
And now the PowerShell Summit is coming to Europe. PowerShell Summit Europe 2014 will be held September 29, 30, and October 1 at the Hotel Park in Amsterdam, Holland. http://powershell.org/wp/community-events/summit/powershell-summit-europe/
If you want to share your PowerShell expertise, then this is your official call to submit presentations for selection!
Topic Areas – What we are looking for
We are looking for 45-minute presentations covering a wide aspect of PowerShell expertise. We have three main topic areas that may assist you in building an abstract.
• PowerShell Internals – A deep look into the inside workings of PowerShell and practical solutions that are built from them. These presentations are more focused on the PowerShell development community that is building extensions and solutions relating to PowerShell.
• PowerShell in Production – These presentations are focused on domain specific PowerShell solutions for IT Pro’s such as managing Exchange, System Center, IIS, SharePoint, VMware and more.
• PowerShell Features Deep Dive – These presentations are a deep look into configuring and working with PowerShell features and capabilities such as PowerShell Remoting, PowerShell Web Access, Reporting and more.
We are open to presentations across the entire ecosystem that has been built around PowerShell; so don’t hesitate to send an abstract for your particular area of expertise. And don’t think, “oh, I can’t do a presentation!” We aren’t looking for Toastmasters winners – we’re looking for folks to be a part of the community! Take the leap and present! Each session is only 35 minutes, with 10 minutes for Q&A!
Presentation submissions – What you should send to us
Presentations will be 45-minutes in length (planning for 30-40 minutes of material and 5-15 minutes of Q&A) and the submission should include the following:
• Presentation Title
• Presentation abstract – a description of the presentation and the topics covered. 100 words or less and suitable for marketing.
• 50 word biography
You can submit multiple presentations in the same topic area or for different ones.
What you get if you present
The European Summit is working to a very tight budget as this is the first time we are running it. Compensation for speakers will be free admission (not free Association for Windows PowerShell Professionals membership, http://powershell.org/wp/association-for-windows-powershell-professionals, just free admission, which includes food). We will not reimburse hotel, expenses, or travel. It’s important that speakers not register for the conference, because we will not be refunding you if you do that.
The financial situation may change to a certain degree if the event sells out but we can’t cover all of your expenses as a speaker and we can’t make any guarantees at this stage.
We also ask that you help publicize the event.
Presentation submission deadline – When you should send it by
Start sending your presentation submissions immediately! The selection committee will start selecting presentations as soon as they arrive so you don’t want to miss out. The last day we will accept presentation submissions will be May 23, 2014.
Send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please either put multiple proposals in a Word doc, or send just one proposal in the body of an email, so that we can track these more easily.
When you will know you’ve been selected
The selection committee will start reviewing submissions immediately and begin the selection process. You will be informed if one or more of your presentations have been selected and sent a contract on or before June 14, 2014. You will need to return the signed contract by June 21, 2014.
The final agenda will be announced early July and posted on PowerShell.Org.
We look forward to your submissions and your help in making PowerShell Summit Europe 2014 your most valuable IT/Dev conference of the year!
We are trying to raise the money to purchase equipment to record the sessions at future PowerShell Summit’s
If you can help us – please do.
There have been some amazing sessions this year – when you watch people’s jaws drop you know the content is great.
If we can record the sessions attendees can see the sessions they missed and non-attendees can see what they are missing
Day one of the Summit has been and gone and it has lived up to expectations. With more attendees and more sessions than last year this is the place to be if you want your PowerShell questions answered.
One of the highlights of day 1 was Steve Muraski’s sessions on DSC. He has recorded them and will be making them available – I’ll post the link when available.
Off to the PowerShell Summit tomorrow morning – 3 days of wall to wall PowerShell with some of the most knowledgeable people in the world. Its going to be fun.
More details of the European Summit will be coming soon – remember its 20 September – 1 October in Amsterdam
