One thing I’ve been doing to improve my skill set is teach myself PowerShell. For those of you who don’t know what that is, here’s my description in a nutshell: it’s the command prompt on steroids.
So far, I’ve come across some references, some good, some not so good, to guide me in this endeavor. For my own reference (and maybe yours!), listed below are some of my favorite PowerShell references.
Within this site, I found an eBook that, so far, has been my favorite reference.
This site is one of my main go-to sites for SQL and other technical references. Within that site, I came across the following:
- Questions About PowerShell Basics That You Were Too Shy To Ask
A PowerShell FAQ
- How To Document Your PowerShell Library
In the very first sentence, author Michael Sorens writes, “I am passionate about documentation.” He’s not the only one.
- Break Your Batch Habit and Move to PowerShell
There are a lot of dissenting opinions in the comments for this article, but I nevertheless thought this was interesting.
- How to Use a Batch File to Make PowerShell Scripts Easier to Run
The title is self-explanatory, but I thought it was also a good explanation of some of PowerShell’s .
This is only a partial list, and I fully expect it to change. As I find more references that I like, I’ll update the above list!
