I was once in doubt about Microsofts attempt to replicate the all powerful *nix command line with PowerShell but my eyes were opened and I got on the bandwagon. Now you will find me gathering information, solving problems and generally having a great time in PowerShell ISE. The lightbulb moment came when I took the PowerShell 3.0 Jumpstart course on Microsoft Virtual Academy.
It starts slow and steady. No prior PowerShell needed, however you do need to leave your preconceptions behind if you are coming from Bash, Bourne, Csh, Zsh, Dos or any other shell. The two presenters are legends Jeffrey Snover was the lead architect behind PowerShell and Jason Helmick is a long time Microsoft trainer and generally great guy.
What are you going to learn watching the PowerShell 3.0 jumpstart?
I learned alot, I could put powerhsell together before but I wouldn’t have said I understood what I was doing, After this I feel more confident in just typing out what I want and most of the time it works 🙂
PowerShell really does rock!
