Today I was invited by Experts Live to take a group of enthusiastic IT professionals through the basics of PowerShell and give them some guidance on the how, what and why of PowerShell. In the last six months this is the third time I have presented or taught a group of IT pros with Experts Live. Today I presented the PowerShell portion of the day and Bert Wolters represented Experts Live in order to increase the engagement in technical communities.
Today I walked the group through the following subjects in an interactive demo based program:
- PowerShell fundamentals
- Using variables and working with Objects
- Loops, operators and flow control
- PowerShell modules, snap-ins and functions
- PowerShell tips from the field
During the day I mentioned a number of learning resources to, some of the topics I mentioned are listed below:
