Beyond lab: Gathering data from real-world scale sources (Short Version)

This is a compressed version of the two-part real-world data gathering workshop. We will look at some epic failures of scripts that look OK and work well in a small environment, then explore some routes of action to deal with huge amounts of data coming in from real-world scale sources like Active Directory, SQL or log stash.

This is not (primarily) about PowerShell multi-threading but rather about really knowing the idiosyncrasies of data sources like Active Directory or IoT streams and scripting practices that allow for mitigating those from the very beginning.
