This workshop session will cover building a PowerShell project from the ground up. The project will be called SoftwareDeployer. It will be a PowerShell module you can use to deploy software to lots of clients. However, this isn't just putting some name to it. The end product will be a software deployer, but you will learn to create all the blocks that go into making a full-fledged PowerShell project.
