Working with remote Powershell behind a proxy server

PowerShell

PowerShell

This week, I have been working on an application that generates new users in Active Directory. Part of the application generates an Office 365 account for the user using a programmatically-generated PowerShell script.

Welcome!

Hi there!

I’m Jason, and this is my web site. Thanks for dropping in!

About me

I’m a full-time system administrator/application developer and part-time consultant. My part-time job mainly consists of solving general computer issues,malware/virus removal, and all manner of troubleshooting. If your computer’s not doing what it should be, I’m the man to whip it into shape.

In my full-time position, I’m working in any number of areas. My team designs, secures, and maintains a network of over 2,000 devices including servers, desktops, laptops, and tablets. While we mostly focus on Windows, we use Apple products as well.

On the development side, I work with SQL Server for database back ends, and develop applications to support our internal users. For this, we generally use C# and WPF. We’re currently supporting a mix of Windows 7, 8, and 10. In the future, we will be upgrading all machines to Windows 10.

In my free time, I enjoy playing games (both digital and physical), creating computer programs.
