Early Summits, and their precursors – the PowerShell Deep Dives – featured Lightning rounds where attendees had 10 minutes or so to present something PowerShell related – a tip, trick, discovery, cool piece of code, new technique etc etc etc …
Summit 2017 brings that concept back. If you’re attending Summit, and if not why not, and you want to be involved check out https://powershell.org/2017/03/22/community-lightning-demos-call-for-proposals/ and sign up.
The full agenda – including the PowerShell team sessions – is now available on the event web site - - https://eventloom.com/event/home/summit2017
This is our biggest ever Summit. We’ve sold out for this year and are already making plans for next year’s Summit. Look for more information later in the year.
Wanted one nice kind PowerShell community member to buy the last lonely ticket for the 2017 PowerShell and DevOps Summit.
That’s right we have one place left. And its definitely the last. if you want it – better hurry.
After selling out in record time we’ve managed to squeeze a few more seats in after discussion with the conference centre.
Those seats are live now.
They are very definitely, the absolute last set of seats we’ll be able to add this year.
First come – First served. When they’re gone – they’re gone
We sold the last seat for the 2017 Summit - https://eventloom.com/event/home/summit2017 yesterday.
If, and its a very big if, more seats become available we'll notify you though the event web site and on powershell.org
Seats at eh PowerShell Summit - https://eventloom.com/event/home/summit2017 – are going fast.
We’ve sold over 70% of the seats – they’re current 55 seats left split between 4-day and 3-day passes. The 3-day passes don’t go on sale until 12 February and we’ll be moving 3-day to 4-day as sales happen between now and then. We have a number of sales in the pipeline that will reduce the number of available seats as well.
We are at maximum capacity for the venue – and probably for the event in its present format.
We are expecting a rapid sell off of the remaining seats when open registration of 3-day passes. We don’t maintain any sort of waiting list and when the seats are gone – they’re gone.
If you are thinking of attending the 2017 Summit I’d advise you to get your seat booked quickly – I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we’d sold out by the end of February.
We are continually evolving the content we present at the PowerShell Summit. This year we're bringing back something that was a feature of the early PowerShell Deep Dives and Summits - the Community Lightning Demos. We have a session set aside on Wednesday afternoon for this. Timescales will depend on the number of people wanting to show something.
In the words of PowerShell MVP Warren Frame who's organising this for us:
Ever wanted to present at Summit but were unsure if you could? This is your opportunity to present something you've discovered to your peers in the PowerShell community. A code trick, or tip, a new module you've created, an open source module or a feature of a cmdlet that's relatively unknown.. The list goes on and on. Anything PowerShell, or DevOps related that you think is cool and that will interest other people is a suitable topic. We're looking for 5-10 minute demos. Something you've done, discovered, solved or run up against. This is your opportunity to "give back" to our community by sharing your knowledge. Make sure its something you can present from your laptop and that you don't need extensive Internet access. A sign up sheet will be available Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. We just need your name and topic. Who knows you may be asked to present a full session at the following Summit. Some of our best speakers started in the Lightning Demos sessions of past events.
This is your opportunity to start presenting to a knowledgeable and appreciative audience. In past events we've had some amazing things come to light - things the PowerShell team didn't realise about PowerShell. If you have something to share please consider signing up for this.
The agenda for next year's Summit is almost complete - we've notified all speakers as to whether their sessions have been accepted or not. If you haven't received your notification please check your spam/junk mail.
We have a small number of sessions yet to publish - mainly around possible focus groups on the Wednesday afternoon.

Registration opens 1 November 2016.
