About

Welcome to the next great European PowerShell event!

This conference combines the former “Deutsche PowerShell Konferenz” and “PowerShell Summit EU” into one great big 3-day PowerShell event for Admins and DevOps! Conference languages are English and German. There is one continuous German track and up to three continuous English tracks. With more than 40 international speakers including PowerShell inventor Jeffrey Snover, and more than 60 sessions, this event is one of the most comprehensive leading edge conferences for anyone dealing with PowerShell. All organizers and speakers volunteer. Your conference ticket pays the rest. You are cordially invited! Don’t wait and register now. Seats are limited.


Further Background

2016 is Leibniz Year in Hannover. Leibniz researched more than 300 years ago, and some of his concepts like the Monadology are spiritual roots of PowerShell. It is easy to get to Hannover by railway or plane, and we secured hotel contingents that you can optionally take advantage of when you register.

Evening Event

All attendees are our guest at the awesome and very unique evening event taking place at the end of conference day 1. We will all walk down to Yukon Bay, an ancient gold digger town in the center of Hannover Zoo that opens all night exclusively for us. Surrounded by polar bears and penguins, this is the perfect place to decelerate, connect with others, enjoy great food and drinks, and get to know PowerShellers from all across the world.


Yukon Bay Yukon Bay

Venue

The conference takes place in the Hannover Conference Centrum (HCC).

On day one, we have two main tracks taking place in the awesome Beethoven Saal and in Blauer Saal. After the keynote in English, you are free to choose between the two main tracks, one in English, and one in German. All tracks will be recorded.

At the end of the first day, there will be an evening event. This event if free for participants.

On day 2 + 3, we have up to 4 main tracks holding 75 attendees maximum each. There will always be one continuous track in English and one in German. The other two tracks deliver presentations in various languages, repeat sessions, or discussions.

We also have 7 breakout session rooms and an emergency room. The emergency room provides help and ad-hoc tutoring to bring you up to speed with topics you are not completely comfortable with. You can also make free appointments with experts for a 1:1 or 1:many.

The remaining breakout session rooms will be used ad-hoc. If you want to take the presenter from a track with you, and discuss details or play yourself with his demos, you can get a breakout session room. Some rooms will be used to deliver refresher classes in RegEx, XML, or other topics, and allow PowerShell user groups to present themselves.
