PowerShell Core is built on top of .NET Core and is cross-platform, available on Windows, MacOS, and Linux thanks to the cross-platform nature of .NET Core. This session is all about what you should know about this new version of PowerShell. You'll learn what you can and can't do with this new version and what's the difference between this and the old version of PowerShell (5.1).
