Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Jeff Hicks, and I wanted to welcome you to my new Pluralsight training course, Putting PowerShell to Work. This course is the next in my series on PowerShell fundamentals. In it, I want to get you working with PowerShell, and get PowerShell to work for you. The focus is on using PowerShell effectively from the command prompt. Now this is a critical part of your PowerShell education. If you don't understand this material, you'll never be able to be a good PowerShell scripter. This means you need to understand how the PowerShell pipeline works, and how to use it to your advantage. You need to understand how objects behave in the pipeline. You need to know how to leverage parameter binding. You need to know how to use PowerShell's formatting system. I'll even show you how to work with PowerShell background jobs. I'll cover all of these topics and much, much more. You'll find my course, as most of them are, full of live demo with plenty of samples to get you going, often with real-world and practical examples. I hope you're ready to put PowerShell to work. Let me show you how with my latest course from Pluralsight, Putting PowerShell to Work.
