Curriculum Director for IT Pro Content


Round out your TechMentor experience with a full–day of entertaining education. Don and Jason are back with an all–new show, sharing their hard–earned life lessons from decades in IT, solid technologies you didn't get during the main tracks, and much more. Expect tips on how they keep up in IT, see how they "Build–A–Lab" using automated scripts and DSC, learn how to access SQL Server databases from PowerShell (and ditch Excel, it's not a database), script the creation of beautiful HTML reports, and how they learned to talk to business leaders on their own terms. There's a lot more on the agenda. Bring your own questions and challenges for everyone to tackle together. All told, you'll have your brain and resume geared up for a productive 2017.

You will learn:

  • Crucial technologies we just couldn't fit anywhere else on the schedule
  • Valuable "soft skills" that will make you a better technologist
  • Ways to keep your skill set sharp as you move into a new year
