If you missed me at Chicago ALT.NET in April, presenting Application Instrumentation with WMI, then you're going to get another shot to hear me in August. I'm going to be at the Lake County .NET User's Group on August 26th in Grayslake, IL:
WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) is most commonly used to query for hard drives, find out what services are running, and other basic Windows functions. But, did you know that you can make your own objects queryable in WMI as well, as well as send custom events? We'll go over how to query machine state with WMI, and then how to instrument your own applications with WMI as well. Finally, I'll show how to make a custom MMC plugin powered with WMI.
The fun starts at 6:30 PM, and goes until 8:30.
