PowerShell practices we can learn from Exchange

Exchange was a saviour to PowerShell's cause at least once. Arguably *the* Microsoft product with the best adoption and deepest integration of PowerShell, Exchange has also led many of our fellow PowerShellers to learning and better understanding the language.
In this session, we will look at some common PowerShell challenges presented by Exchange administration - on-prem and in the Cloud - which, if mastered properly, enable you to develop more robust scripting practices.
After this talk, you will be able to evaluate and maybe improve your scripting habits in regard to
- remoting
- unwrapping complex objects
- working with infrastructure data in time-lagged scenarios
- configuration management and portability.
This session does not target the hardcore Exchange administrators but rather fellow infrastructure admins that have some (very little is enough) Exchange experience. Knowing what an email is helps :-)
