Sean Kearney: “A long time ago in a Cmdlet far far away... there was this guy, who sang about PowerShell" Sean is a Cloud and Datacenter Management MVP who's main Axe is Windows PowerShell. He is also on Honorary Scripting Guy and regular contributor to the "Hey Scripting Guys" Blog site on Microsoft having also written six unique Holiday Specials about Windows PowerShell. Often seen with PowerShell Polly at his side, he delights in trying to make life a little better for others through automation. Unfortunately, he sings (*badly*) so we can't forgive him for that.
