CS 14 Airlift Hangover

Last week some of you may have noticed that I didn’t post. Well, it was an especially busy week with having to attend the Communications Server 14 Airlift in Redmond. This was the first time that I have had the opportunity to attend an Airlift. It was a great week but after having to squeeze as much information into my brain at one time I seem to have a hangover feeling even though I drank no alcohol.

For me, even though I can’t go into any details, PowerShell is going to be a major component in CS 14. Adam mentions it use here. I think it’s a blessing if you're familiar with the constructs of PowerShell and somewhat scary if you’re not. To be honest I am no PowerShell expert, which means I am a little intimidated by it but I can certainly see the potential when combined with its scripting capabilities and anyone that has worked with a command line system before will adapt quickly. After spending 10 years working on Cisco IOS its only a matter of time before I become more comfortable I feel.

Hopefully the next few weeks ease up so I can go back to writing more content here on VoIPNorm. I got some great feedback from people at the Airlift (thanks Henry, Jason and Andrew). One thing people really seem to like is the steady flow of posts. Keeping a blog going with regular posts is a challenge which if you let it, it can fall by the wayside when other more important stuff arises. I am currently in the process of putting together some really interesting posts on some new and not so new interoperability information, so stay tuned over the following weeks.

Comments welcomed.



  1. It was my pleasure to meet you at the CS14 airlift. Keep on blogging!

  2. Ah, too bad we didn't meet - 've been reading your blog for some time now.

    I totally agree on the PowerShell - albeit - it still needs loads of documenting ;)
