Aleksandar Nikolic



I'm a freelance Azure and PowerShell trainer delivering courses around the world and a frequent speaker at IT conferences such as Microsoft Ignite, Microsoft TechDays, ESPC, Techorama, MMSMOA, NIC, Techmentor, and PowerShell Conference Europe.

I’ve been a script junkie for a long time. I played with early WSH and remember, not too fondly, spending hours searching for help, white papers, or any other form of documentation I could lay my hands on to solve problems. It’s hard to imagine today, when almost every Microsoft product team has its own blog, that it was once difficult for sysadmins to reach out to Microsofties for information. 

I participated in some early Monad betas years ago but found it too complicated for my needs. When Monad became PowerShell, I decided to give it another try and I’ve been hooked ever since. PowerShell has quickly become an integral part of my daily life. I've used it to automate Active Directory management and to write auditing scripts designed do keep my systems secure. Today, I can’t imagine sitting at my keyboard and not seeing the familiar PowerShell prompt in front of me. 

In addition to using PowerShell, I like participating in the PowerShell community. I’ve become friends with many PowerShell bloggers and MVPs. I enjoy speaking about PowerShell at conferences and user group meetings.
