Course Overview [Autogenerated] Hi, I'm Thomas Lee and I'm really excited to share my new Pluralsight course Windows Work flows with PowerShell with you today. For those of you do not know me, I'm a PowerShell veteran. I was in that room in Los Angeles in 2003 on the day Microsoft and I work with every version both beta and released a PowerShell Ever since, I've also written and taught a huge number of PowerShell courses a bunch for Pluralsight in person. I've also spoken at conferences around the world about PowerShell. I'm a real PowerShell bigot. Now the course, which has five modules, has several objectives. First, we want to explain exactly what work flows are and what PowerShell work flows are also want to look at what Windows workflow foundation is and how that relates to PowerShell in PowerShell work flows. The core of the course is designed to show you how to write, debug and run a workflow using PowerShell along with a few demos that I'm sure you'd like to try out at home. Now, in a departure from normal Pluralsight approaches, I actually have a module which looks at how you convert a set of scripts to it workflow. The most important part of that module is the lessons that I learned trying to do just that. And finally, we want to give you lots of resource is both to reinforce these course details and also to provide you with more information. So I think this is a pretty good course, and I hope you will enjoy it and look forward to hearing from you.
