Description

In this live Play by Play, PowerShell MVPs and experts Don Jones and Hicks discuss and demonstrate their approaches to using PowerShell. Very often, a problem or task is presented to an IT Pro and while PowerShell seems like a viable solution, where do they begin? Do they run a few interactive commands? Should they take the time to write a script or a series of advanced functions? When is a PowerShell workflow the right solution? How does DSC fit into the picture? Don and Jeff will explore all of these decision points and offer plenty of practical advice and guidance and they'll do it by tackling a task they've never done before, so that you can see the exact process they use.
