Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Jeff Adkin, and welcome to my course, building PowerShell GUIs in WPF for free. I'm a practice lead at Online Business Systems. One thing I want to mention is that PowerShell is the most used IT automation tool out of the entire Microsoft stack. Now because of that, in this course what we're going to be doing is we're going to take all of our PowerShell scripts, and we're going to create GUIs for them in WPF. Now some of the major topics that we will cover include using the Windows Presentation Framework XAML in PowerShell, having PowerShell work with the GUI controls, we're also going to be using Visual Studio designer to create our GUIs, and we're going to turn our scripts and UIs into executable programs. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create GUIs for PowerShell in WPF for free. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basic PowerShell syntax. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into PowerShell and WPF with courses on building advanced functions in PowerShell, WMI and CIM in PowerShell, and of course WPF productivity. I hope you'll join my on this journey to learn building PowerShell GUIs in WPF for free at Pluralsight.
