In this course, PowerShell team member Joey Aiello shows some of the exciting Open Source tools available in PowerShell, including the Visual Studio Code plugin, Pester testing modules, and the PowerShell Private Gallery.
Get up to speed on the latest tool developments in Open Source from Microsoft's Powershell team by watching this Play by Play course. Play by Play is a series where top technologists sit down for an unrehearsed, unscripted conversation about tools you use and scenarios you encounter. For Play by Play: Open Source Projects from the PowerShell Team, author Jason Helmick traveled to Redmond, WA to sit down with members of the core product teams at Microsoft in order to bring you expert advice and advanced tutorials on the technology you use (or should be using moving forward). PowerShell team member Joey Aiello will show off some of the Open Source projects his team has been working on. You'll see how Visual Studio Code can help PowerShell module development, how the PSScriptAnalyzer tool helps you follow best practices and design patterns, working with OpenSSH and SFTP in PowerShell, and more. By the end of this course, you'll have a handful of tools to add to your work bench and you'll see how you can contribute to these projects.
