by Matt Allford

In this IT Ops session, you'll discover how PowerShell Crescendo amplifies traditional command-line applications, and gain insights on how to begin crafting your own Crescendo modules.

What you'll learn

IT Ops sessions are short-form conference-style sessions, minus the conference. In this session, Up and Running with PowerShell Crescendo, you'll learn how PowerShell Crescendo can take traditional command-line applications and amplify them, to include object based output on the PowerShell pipeline. You'll also get hands-on and create a new PowerShell command using Crescendo to wrap around a traditional command-line application. When you're finished with this session, you'll know how to use PowerShell Crescendo to amplify existing command-line applications, so you and others can consume those tools in a PowerShell native way.
