PowerShell is the lingua franca of DevOps on Windows, Azure, and now MacOS and Linux if you choose. Automated configuration and management is the key to success in the modern enterprise – whether on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment. Whether you're a native programmer using C++, a managed developer using .NET, or even someone who's already embraced scripting, PowerShell is an invaluable tool in your DevOps toolbox. This session will work from the ground up to using advanced features, including Interop, Desired State Configuration, and custom TFS/VSTS tasks.

You will learn:

  • How to configure your PowerShell environment
  • How to use PowerShell quickly and efficiently
  • About any PowerShell "gotchas"
