Advanced PowerShell Video Training is now in Early Release

Many of my students have asked for it.  Here it is.  My Advanced PowerShell class on video.

Over the past year I have had the pleasure of working with O’Reilly Media in developing a video training series on advanced PowerShell.  I started delivering PowerShell training in 2009 with Version 1 and have continued to advence my classes through PowerShell 5. This online training is based on the questions from hundreds of my students and the practices that we developed together in class.

My approach is to teach the concepts in small, manageable units.  These units are then assembled into the big picture.  Each chapter has plenty of code and in some cases, templates.

I also included, as part of the introduction, how to build a personal test environment.  Having a sandbox to play in is very important when developing your code.  You can quickly simulate what you need and fine tune your code. 

You can find the early release videos here: Advanced Windows PowerShell Scripting
