I'll be down in Chicago at the "Big Willy" on April 14th at 6 PM, presenting to Chicago ALT.NET on Application Instrumentation with WMI. Here is the abstract:
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.
It's free to attend, but you need to sign up ahead of time in order to get into the building. There is free pizza for attendees, as well as some really nice door prizes at the end.
