I just noticed that Ed Wilson, aka The Scripting Guy (at Microsoft), has another book out. Entitled Windows PowerShell Best Practices, it's a book that provides great examples on how to get the most out of PowerShell.
The book shows you how you can:
- Use Windows PowerShell to automate Active Directory tasks
- Explore available WMI classes and methods with CIM cmdlets
- Identify and track scripting opportunities to avoid duplication
- Use functions to encapsulate business logic and reuse code
- Design your script’s best input method and output destination
- Test scripts by checking their syntax and performance
- Choose the most suitable method for running remote commands
- Manage software services with Desired State Configuration
Lots of goodness from a good author.
