Course Introduction Hi everyone, my name is Jeff Hicks, and welcome to my course PowerShell Remoting Fundamentals. I'm a multi-year PowerShell MVP working today as an independent IT pro creating content such as articles, books, and courses like this to help you do your job better and more efficiently. Now, for many IT pros, PowerShell is becoming the management tool for managing just about everything in your network. To really take advantage of PowerShell, this means learning to effectively manage hundreds or even thousands of servers at once with PowerShell remoting. This course is designed to follow a typical Windows administrator, Stephanie, who wants to learn how to use PowerShell remoting to do her job, like you, more efficiently. You'll shadow her progress as she learns how to set up and use PowerShell remoting. You'll learn, again as Stephanie goes along, about PowerShell remoting features such as trusted hosts, setting up an SSL remoting connection, implicit remoting, and disconnected sessions. By the end of the course, you should know how to set up and test PowerShell remoting, you should know how to use remoting to manage a single computer in an interactive session, or run a series of commands on multiple computers at the same time. And throughout it all, you'll learn how to do it safely and securely. I designed the course assuming you have some basic PowerShell skills and experience. You don't need to be a script writer, but I'm assuming you know what cmdlets and variables are and how to use the PowerShell console. Of course, the more PowerShell skills you know, the better. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more and discover how it can make your job better with my PowerShell Remoting Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.
