Description

Jeffrey Snover and Kenneth Hansen have been driving PowerShell since the beginning.

    Thank you, PowerShell.

    I like it, for manage over 1,000 machine, kick flows on Microsoft Flow, use Cognitive Services, etc.

    I hope to manage mobile, and manage IoT devices.

    Regards,

    I can't watch this video, it wants me to install Silverlight in Microsoft Edge (can't). I tried downloading the video, but it says the source is invalid.

    You could use --%

    @stahtufiang: Unfortunately, this question can be interpreted multiple ways.

    If you are asking - how do you ensure standard (non-admin) users cannot run scripts: you can use Execution Policy to block running scripts, however that can be over-ridden by an administrator. To get information about this feature, run the command "get-help set-executionpolicy -detailed"

    Hope that answers the question.

    @komalsinghjadon: Hard to pick a "best" book available, as there are several that are really good.

    The one I personally learned from is "Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunches" by Don Jones. It's not free, but it's a good reference. The "Windows PowerShell Cookbook" by Lee Holmes is another really good book that helped me learn.

    If you are seeking free ebooks, you should start by reviewing the list on PowerShell.org/ebooks.

    @Jesse: There is (on my screen) a link to download the video as an MP3, on the right-hand side of the page.

    In case you cannot see the link, it shows up as: http://video.ch9.ms/ch9/6846/ebfa637f-2fe4-4b90-bcaa-a2962cfb6846/KeynotePowershellThenandNow.mp3

    @JKeithBankston:There is a new version of the PowerShell in a Month of Lunches which was just released.  And for those who want to go deeper, I recommend Learn PowerShell Toolmaking in a Month of Lunches, also by Don Jones and Jeffrey Hicks.  One more that I've found helpful isWindows PowerShell Step by Step by Ed Wilson.  And if you want really solid online training, I suggest a subscription to PluralSight.  They have tons of PowerShell content, all for a single monthly fee (approx. $30/month for individuals).
