Take PowerShell to its maximum potential by learning how to turn basic command-line utilities into your own repeatable, self-contained, modular management tools, suitable for sharing with the less-technical folks in your environment. Almost no scripting is needed, as PowerShell provides structures that turn multi-command processes into self-contained tools without requiring complex programming. Don walks you through the entire process, and provides downloadable templates that you can use when you’re back in the office to start being immediately effective. You’ll start with a simple command, and build it into a complete tool that looks and works just like a built-in PowerShell “cmdlet.” You’ll also learn how to package and distribute that commands – and others you create – using modules. As a bonus, Don even shows you how to create custom, pre-defined formatting for your command’s output. It’s like being a Visual Studio programmer – without any actual programming!
