As automation grows in the IT workplace, it maybe be growing to fast for a lot of folks to keep up with. PowerShell is taking over the Windows World, and now is moving into the UNIX and Mac spaces as well. I have attended the PowerShell + DevOps Global Summit three out of the five years it has been running, and it has some of the best content of any conference I have had the pleasure of being part of. That being said, the great people at PowerShell.org have come up with a great idea of giving scholarships to a few fine deserving individuals so they can attend the Summit if they maybe struggling to find administrative approval.
I was discussing with Don Jones, president of PowerShell.org, on ways I could help out with the organization. He asked me if I would take on the tasks involed with the PowerShell + DevOps Global Summit Scholarship. To be honest, I was a little worried, as I have never done anything like this, especially on such scale. But none the less here where are, the announcement page has been posted, you can find it here to get all the program details.
The main goal of this program is to hopefully reach individuals that would be considered part of a group which is “under represented” in the IT industry as a whole, including women, underrepresented minorities, overworked help desk staff, and so on. So, if you’re the IT Director, or the Senior Systems Architect, this program is not targeted at you; however, if you know an individual that fits this description, please encourage them to apply.
We will be accepting applications for the month of September. My panel of three Microsoft MVPs and I will deliberate throught the month of October, and announce a winner in Novemeber. Again, for more information, and how to apply, go to PowerShell.org.
Please spread the word to anyone who may not yet be involved in the PowerShell network. Don’t let them miss this opportunity!
