Microsoft’s just published details of it’s ‘official’ course on PowerShell V3. This is being written by Don Jones, so it should be a pretty solid course. I look forward to teaching this course, which is meant to go live in May. I don’t know who the TE will be, but I’ve certainly volunteered!
The course looks to be a good beginners look at PowerShell V3. As the Microsoft web site points out, this will be a 200-level look and is not intended to teach much about scripting or programming. For those IT pros who have never seen PowerShell, this looks to be a very good course, although it will be pedestrian and will not be overly technically deep.
I have my own PowerShell V3 material and have been teaching V3 for some months. My material is more condenses, and at a higher level (300-400), and I have more advanced material for those needing more specific PowerShell related skills such as using PowerShell to manage XML and SQL. One (if I do say so myself) awesome aspect of my material is that delegates build their own VM test environment using PowerShell scripts (i.e. ones I started blogging about this week).
I am looking forward to the new course – which should be great fun to deliver as well as being able to challenge delegates with more advanced material as needs be.
As soon as I get the courseware and am able to, I’ll post more about this course.
