For our November 2019 Mississippi PowerShell User Group virtual meeting, Microsoft MVP Jeff Hicks will be presenting “Building a REST-based PowerShell Module” on Tuesday, November 12th at 8:30pm central time.
Using REST APIs with PowerShell is a terrific way to leverage an external resource into your PowerShell scripting. Want some commands to manage some technology where none exist? If there is a REST API you can consume, then you can build your own PowerShell commands. In this presentation, I’ll demonstrate my process in taking a set of REST APIs and turning them into a PowerShell module. The module is still a work in progress so this is an opportunity to see how I work and hopefully you’ll pick up some useful techniques or ideas.
