Marco Shaw, another Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for PowerShell, wanted to download videos from the over 450 sessions from the Microsoft TechEd 2011 conference. Microsoft made the sessions available using the Open Data Protocol (OData).
Marco points out in his Hey, Scripting Guy! post PowerShell 2.o does not support OData out of the box. He used my PowerShell OData implementation HERE on CodePlex to automate the downloading of sessions in a flexible way.
Thanks for the great write up Marco and demonstrating how PowerShell can save you time by automating key tasks.
