SAPIEN Is Proud To Support Our Veterans

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012 by Robert Morey
The recent news of veterans returning home has hopefully reminded everyone of all the contributions veterans have made to our country. Whether by land, sea, or air, our soldiers have always served our country with honor and distinction. After their service finished, many of our warriors have returned to civilian life and have gone on to be entrepreneurs, employees, students, and other contributing members of society, quite often with new and interesting ideas. As we speak (well, type...), many of our soldiers are returning from the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, as well as from other conflicts. We can all do…   More »

Making Resolutions

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012 by Ferdinand Rios
Occasionally people ask us about our resolutions... not the New Year's kind, but rather, the video kind. As you probably know, SAPIEN has produced several PowerShell training videos. These videos come in two formats: on DVD and as a download. The DVD videos are not "true" DVDs, i.e. if you pop them into your DVD player they will not play like a movie. Rather, these videos are packaged as .MOV files for viewing on your computer  using Apple QuickTime. These .MOV files have a vertical resolution of 720 pixels (HD quality.) They play great on computers and other devices that…   More »

2012 Is The Year Of PowerShell—Are You Ready?

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012 by Robert Morey
You really need to make PowerShell your top New Year’s Resolution because 2012 is *the* year of PowerShell.  Microsoft is putting it front and center in its Windows Management Framework 3.0 which is due sometime in 2012.  And you need to be ready for it.  Sure, you need to put exercise and a good diet at the top of your priorities, too, but you need to feed and exercise your brain as well.  Keeping your brain in shape will lead to job security, a fat wallet, and incessant praise from your colleagues and your end users.  Well, maybe not the…   More »
