If you've been developing for the Windows platform longer than five minutes you've probably heard or read about someone singing the praises of PowerShell. This is especially true if you've bumped into your network administrator cousins. However, if you've taken a look at PowerShell either by running it or reading about it on the internet, you're quickly overwhelmed by snap ins, pipelines, and command lines that make Perl or assembly language look like the epitome of clarity. This session aims to clarify what PowerShell can do for you as a developer and why it's important in your arsenal. Don't worry if you haven't even started PowerShell before as this session starts from the beginning and shows you how to leverage it as a developer. Everything is eventually going PowerShell so it's high time you do as well.
