PowerShell Conference Asia 2018

For three days, PowerShell experts deliver some great content

PowerShell is fast becoming an essential tool in DevOps toolchains as it continues on its mission to empower the administration of Any Cloud, on Any Platform, from Any Device.

The PowerShell Conference Asia resumes for its 4th year this October, bringing speakers from Asia and around the world to deliver in-depth PowerShell and DevOps sessions. Speakers include the Microsoft PowerShell Product Team from headquarters in Redmond and a strong line-up of MVPs, well-known international speakers, and community contributors.

They'll cover in-depth topics on the PowerShell language and how you can use PowerShell to automate the technologies you use every day, both within the Microsoft technology stack and well beyond. There will be strong focus on using PowerShell to enable DevOps practices whether On Premises or in the cloud as well as Systems Administration and Security. Our theme for this year will emphasise on the Open Source aspects of PowerShell development as we look to build an even stronger community engagement and contribution.

The main event runs on Friday and Saturday, but we also have a pre-conference day on Thursday for hands-on workshops.

At the end of Day 1 (Friday), we have drinks and nibbles at a local bar where you can connect with peers and the speakers in a more relaxed setting. All included in your ticket price. Remember, we still have another full day of content on Saturday though! This event is made possible by our generous sponsors

We rely on sponsorship and the support of the community through ticket sales to make this event happen and appreciate the support. Please register for the mailing list using the link on this page to be added into our community Slack channel, click the Register link to buy your tickets.
We look forward to welcoming you to the event!
