About


PowerShell Conference Europe is the largest PowerShell-themed conference in Europe, and is held in Hanover, Germany each year. We attract speakers and attendees from all over the world, with such topics as security, DevOps, databases, core language features, optimization, DSC, best practices and much more.

If you use PowerShell in your daily job, this conference is the perfect opportunity to enchance your skillset as well as build your network with like-minded individuals. The talk between each session is often where the magic happens! All speakers are available (as much as it's possible) throughout the whole conference, and are approachable for questions and discussions.

Each year Microsoft also sends a delegation from the PowerShell team, and this is a unique opportunity to interact directly with the people responsible for developing PowerShell.

In 2018, we extend the conference from 3 to 4 days and include a new PowerShell Guerilla Evening. Delegates get the chance to actually work with some of the many new and exciting technologies, guided by speakers and experts. Instead of just listening to presentations, the Guerilla Evening gives you the opportunity to actually put things to work and get high class guidance. For example, security expert Will Harmj0y and colleagues will point you to the tools required to defend IT environments, and you'll actually see and learn how PowerShell can be used as a forensic tool, how attackers think, and how you can defend attacks. Bring a notebook if you'd like to code yourself, or just follow the demos.

The conference is organized by the community, for the community! And we are happy to welcome you to yet another brilliant conference on April 17-20, 2018. Will we see you there?

Call for Papers


We’d like you to be part of the psconf.eu 2018 speakers team, and share your knowledge, experience, and wisdom! This is what we are looking for:

Classic Presentations (45 min + 15 min Q&A)

Focus on fresh content that would make a difference to you if you where listening to it. Always consider that psconfEU audiences are experienced PowerShell users.

Expert-Led Training Sessions (60 min)

In 2018, we want to complement classic frontal presentation with labs where audiences can bring their PowerShell 5/Core notebook and follow along your demo. Choose this session type only for sessions where you are confident that 60 min time is sufficient. We will have one designated evening event for more extensive hands-on sessions that will be organized separately among accepted speakers and staff.

If you would like to speak at PowerShell Conference Europe, please submit one or more session propopals at our PaperCall site!
