Why study this course

Perhaps you use PowerShell daily but don’t really know what’s happening; you’re running someone else’s scripts. Perhaps you are like many of us and find scripts on the internet and modify them to suit your needs but don’t really understand what certain components are doing. Perhaps you just want to do a few ad-hoc daily tasks a bit more efficiently.

This one-day workshop will demystify PowerShell and take away some of the fear and mystery for those new to PowerShell. It will look at the hows and whys of the components of PowerShell and how to use the inbuilt self-discovery features.

This workshop is not intended for experienced PowerShell users. “Deep dive” courses may be considered in the future. It's just enough to whet the appetite and have you keen for more!
