Jones is all about PowerShell. The president and CEO of PowerShell.org, Inc., Jones has written a number of books on PowerShell and runs PowerShell Summits, the Scripting Games and other PowerShell-related events.

At Pluralsight, a video training company with courses for admins, creative pros and IT pros, he’s the Curriculum Director. A Microsoft Most Valuable Professional in the area of Cloud and Datacenter Management, he’s a frequent speaker on… you guessed it … PowerShell.

In a recent post, Jones speculated on Active Directory’s future. (Spoiler: There’s a bit of a PowerShell-related angle.)
