MSPSUG July 2020 Virtual Meeting: Evolution of PowerShell: From Console To Script To Function

For our July 2020 Mississippi PowerShell User Group virtual meeting Steven Judd will be presenting “Evolution of PowerShell: From Console To Script To Function” on Tuesday, July 14th at 7:30 pm Mountain Time.

Learning PowerShell is a progression where you learn a skill and add it to what you have learned before. The clever design of the language allows you to naturally progress from entering commands at the console, to writing scripts, to writing functions, to writing modules and beyond. Wait? There is something beyond writing a module? Yes, but that is not what we are going to be covering. We will start with a straightforward problem and how, using only the built-in functionality of PowerShell, to solve the problem by creating a command that works, converting that command to a script, enhancing that script with parameters, turning that script into a function, and ending with an advanced function. Please join me for a demonstration of PowerShell evolution and how to advance your solutions.

Steven Judd is a 25+ year IT Pro and currently a Digital Security Analyst at Devon Energy Corporation with an emphasis on DevOps and cloud-focused solutions and infrastructure. He has been using PowerShell since 2010 and co-developed a custom training program for PowerShell. He loves to help people learn and recognize the value of automation. He spends free time learning more about PowerShell, digital security, and cloud technologies, along with creating and telling Dad jokes. You can find him hanging out on the PowerShell Discord Server bridge channel, taking care of his family, running marathons, playing the cello, plus a handful of other hobbies he just can’t seem to quit. Please follow him on Twitter, @stevenjudd, read his blog, and review, use, and improve his code on GitHub.
