PS1 PREP SCHOOL: The Windows PowerShell v2 No-Scripting Crash Course

March 8th, 2010

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Don Jones


You want to learn to automate administrative tasks… but you’re not interested in becoming a programmer? No problem: Windows PowerShell isn’t a “VBScript replacement,” it’s a powerful interactive shell that delivers immediate results using a set of powerful command-line utilities. Join Windows PowerShell author, columnist, and MVP Don Jones – one of the world’s most sought-after and experienced Windows PowerShell instructors – and start putting PowerShell to practical use right away. You’ll learn how to inventory remote computer management information, manage Active Directory users and groups, perform what used to be tough admin tasks (like resetting service accounts’ login passwords), and more – all without writing a single line of “code.” This is not a hands-on workshop, but Don does make all sample scripts and a complete demo transcript available via e-mail after the conference. If you’ve never used PowerShell before, this is the perfect place to start – this session will prepare you to take maximum advantage of the other PowerShell-related sessions offered at TechMentor! If you’re already familiar with Windows PowerShell v1, this is still a great session – you’ll learn new, easier techniques offered in v2 along with brand-new capabilities!
