Links from Exploring the wealth of ConfigMgr Community Tools at MMS

At MMS 2017 in Minneapolis me and Ryan Ephgrave @EphingPosh had the great honor of doing a session on some of the great Community tools out there for Configuration Manager. We did it last year as well with the help of Kent Agerlund and it is always great fun, just preparing it, researching looking for new tools, what has changed, what is updated is great!

We did some polls as well on Twitter this year on which tools people used for different purposes, the result of these polls is in this post as well together with the links to the tools we talked about and demoed.
