Powershell Plus from idera a nifty free tool to learn powershell November 6, 2012

I’ll be honest, I hate programming, scripting and code type stuff, I come from a networking background and I prefer to do hands on technical type stuff.

So ask me to work out a sub netting scheme, or explain a packet structure, or connect up a machine and I’m fine. I can use a GUI and configure Hyper-V, Exchange, VMware etc.

Ask me to write a powershell script and I become extremely grumpy, I like the day light, I can communicate with my fellow humans and I can also talk quite easily to the opposite sex, and sorry to stereo type but developers / code monkeys can’t. But what they can do is script.

Unfortunately for my job, I also now have to know about powershell.

As I was trawling the web for powershell stuff I came across a fantastic website.

The website is owned by Idera and one of the sections is

Free tool to learn and master PowerShell fast
