- [Voiceover] Welcome to this course in Understanding PowerShell 5.0. I'll tell you what folks, I've been working with PowerShell since version one. And version five has a lot of great changes, but the nice thing about this course, regardless of what version you're gonna use, this course is gonna help you learn this wonderful language. PowerShell's one of my favorite things in all of Window's techonlogies. I know I used to do VBScripts and I used to use batch files, probably you've done the same thing to help maintain your environment. And if you have, you already have a leg up of learning PowerShell. Because the nice thing about this, is that's what PowerShell does.
