January Meeting – Ed Wilson and Windows PowerShell Best Practices   Leave a comment

Please mark your calendars for the first official Madison PowerShell User Group meeting! We are happy to welcome Ed Wilson, the Microsoft Scripting Guy. He’ll be speaking about PowerShell best practices. This is not a meeting to miss! If you’re just starting out or a seasoned PowerShell user, you will no doubt learn something from the Scripting Guy.

Windows PowerShell Best Practices

Learn Windows PowerShell best practices as they apply to each stage of the script development lifecycle. See the differences between working interactively from the Windows PowerShell prompt, writing an inline script, adding basic function, advanced functions and finally the implementation of Windows PowerShell Modules. What is a local best practice for Windows PowerShell development is not the same as a global best practice, and this talk covers those differences.
