I haven’t posted anything recently, mainly due to too many things happening.
In 2019 I’ve been to 2 conferences and 7 meetups as a speaker.
I’ve presented some of my recent work at THE GREATEST conference - PSConf 2019 and Best Spent Day with PowerShell at PSDayUK.
If you’re interested, all my slides and code are available on GitHub.
I’ve also had the pleasure to write a chapter for PSConfBook volume 2.
Well, now I can say it was a pleasure, but when I was writing it… Let’s just say it is a brand new experience in my Spell Book.
I wasn’t able to dedicate as much time to my GitHub repositories as I would like to
End of the year is always hectic - especially if your daughter has Birthday during the Christmas Eve and … both of your kids got some flu and are sick for nearly two months now.
Anyway - I plan to get back to more frequent blogging - a lot of drafts awaits - and coding!
There was an email from a specific
FROM: I was afraid to receive. The
MVP Global Administrator.
It cameon on Saturday and it began with:
I’m thrilled and humbled to join the ranks of so many great people!
It’s still a distant thought - like it has happened to someone else!
I would like to thank all those who helped me be where I am now.
The biggest goes to my familly for neverending support.
Then to all my friends that are with me in this journey!
Last but not least - to all bloggers - I’ve learnt so much from you since my journey began that my only choice was to give it back!
kick came after I met Jeffrey Snover in 2016 during first PSConf and then again in 2017 at the very same conference!
PPoSh was founded and grounded then and the fun-ride began!
When I was preparing my first two talks for PSConf 2018, my son (8-year-old back then) approached me and asked -
Daddy, what do you get from this? Are you being paid?
I smiled and instantly answered - ‘No, I get nothing for this’. And before I was able to add anything else another question came
So why do you do this?
Then I paused for a second and replied
‘I’ve put it wrong. I’m not being paid, but I get a LOT. I get to know fantastic, open minded and always willing to help people. I can learn from THEM. People I follow, read everyday and learn from ‘remotely’. I can meet them in person! Yea, the cost is that I’m petrified for 2 hours (2 talks!) but it’s not much comparing to the benefit of it.’
Then I asked him what would he do, if someone would help him with his homework. He replied he would help them too.
‘So this is why I do this’ I’ve added. ‘I cannot help THOSE people as they are far away and know more than I do, but I can help others. Help them and share what I already know’.
Don Jones describes it best in Be The Master!
And so, with this year coming I plan to do the same!
I’m honored to join PS Conf EU 2020 speaker ranks once again!
And it is just the first half of 2020!
I still cannot belive this
