May will be cloudy in Bergen, but this time it’s not bothersome clouds with rain, but cool clouds for better IT solution.

The forecast shows total cloud covering the 19. of May from 9:00 until 15:30, and the centre will be around “Vil Vite” and the free Lumagate seminar

Ole Tom is one of the most experienced Microsoft Norway employees, and have seen the changes in security needs in the modern datacentre and user patterns. He will talk about how to think security in the cloud related word.

The Bergen offices have several of the most skilled people in their fields working there, so Remi a seasoned Identity consultant, Håvard an Azure expert with head in the cloud but both feet’s firmly on the ground and me, Olav, are “locals” from the Bergen office.

Testing a couple of solutions without using the get_win8key with my great scripting guru colleague Håvard ( and figuring out that it cannot be done with default powershell stuff, it needs more code. Therefore, we quickly figured out that some use of the “get_win8key” files is the easiest way, but we need a way of setting the output fro…
