Learn the basics of PowerShell scripting for Windows Server administration.
- [Lecturer] PowerShell is best defined as a combination of two important features, a powerful command shell and a scripting language. While the individual cmdlets and functions are a huge improvement over the old DOS command interpreter, the real benefit comes from stringing them together to make mole hills out of mountainous administration tasks. This course will build on a basic understanding of the shell side of PowerShell, and give you the power of building scripts.
We will take a look at how to build effective functions, how to move information into and out of different types of data files, and how to extract information about the operating system itself. Along the way you'll learn tips, tricks and best practices of effective PowerShell scripts. Hi, I'm Scott Burrell, technology architect and technical trainer and I'm excited to bring you this installment of PowerShell training.
