RTPSUG - RepAdmin: A PowerSheller's Guide to AD Directory Services

September 04, 2019 0 Comments Community, Active-Directory

This month the Research Triangle PowerShell user's group is proud to be hosting Mathias Jessen in person on September 9th at 6:30 pm EST in Raleigh to do a deep dive exploration of the corners of Active Directory Domain Services most admins probably don’t think about that often.

Who is Mathias Jessen?
Mathias (@iisresetme) is a well-known community member who lives in the Netherlands and speaks at just about every major PowerShell conference around the world. He has a razor-sharp mind and an interesting wit. I met Mattias at PowerShell Summit 2018 just hanging out in the bar. I spent nearly the whole afternoon with him and did not understand who he was or his reputation as an awesome speaker. I just thought I was hanging out with some nice foreigner who was taking pity on me.

Mathias is one of those great guys in the community happy to help spread the word and talk about PowerShell, automation, and security. Lucky for me, I have interacted with Mathias more and more over the past year. At some point I mentioned to him I would love to have him speak for our user group sometime. Little did I know that Matthias was making a trip to the states!!! One thing led to another and Matthias offered to come to Raleigh and present in person to our group. I couldn’t believe what he was telling me at the time!!! I am very grateful for his willingness to come and hang out with us.

Mathias works as an Active Directory security engineer and blue team member by day and acts as an advocate for PowerShell and automation in his own personal time. I find his talks interesting because he sees details in tools and concepts that I never considered. He picks things apart and sees how they work. Then he sees what happens when you blow up said tools.

One thing you can count on with Mathias is to learn something amazing every time he speaks because he is not afraid to explore other areas untouched by many speakers! If you can show up in person, then I highly recommend you come and join us. If you cannot join us in person, you can also join us online.
