DISCLAIMER: This was originally a way to document what I was learning when I first ran into PowerShell as a student who had no prior scripting experience. The examples given and the posts done in relation to the project most likely do not follow best practices and should definitely be reviewed if they are going to be used in any fashion. You have been warned! 🙂
Why have I only posted basic, vague messages about PowerShell?
That’s because I barely know it myself, and didn’t necessarily know where to go first when it came to teaching it. I was able to walkthrough basic directory navigation and touch extremely lightly on the Active Directory cmdlets. Teach as I go. But guess what? Order has been restored! Err…or has been implemented for the first time since the blog began!
THE POWERSHELL PROJECT:
A Noobie’s Journey into Scripting
:How it’s going to work:
Once every week, I am going to write-up a blog post on what I learned the week before with PowerShell. I will also throw up the scripts I end up writing in each post, and doubly-so to an awesome PowerShell Project page. In doing ANY tasks I wish to complete in PowerShell, from making a one-time backup to creating a new virtual machine, I won’t be able to complete the task unless I do it through the PowerShell CLI (or better yet, the ISE).
The project is definitely going to be more of a “learn with me” setup for newcomers to PowerShell CLI/scripting, so my scripts will easily be staring at you…waiting for improvements. Lacking options and functionality. Wishing for random members in a current ghost community to contribute and improve them.
With each weekly post, it will be an open-forum for others to give their opinion on what can be changed, improved, expanded, etc.
Sound awesome? I think so. The page has already been added, and the posts will start next week!
