Creating HTML reports with PowerShell


Creating HTML reports with PowerShell

Creating HTML reports on one hand is almost brain-dead easy in PowerShell. But using it with style takes a little more work. Wouldn't you like to add a little pizzazz to your HTML reports that you create in PowerShell. In this session I'll offer some tips and tricks for creating great looking, or at least better looking, HTML reports including stylized alternate rows and embedded graphics.

Next meeting: Are You Checking Out My Profile?

Wednesday,  December 12, 2012 12:00 PM EST (-5 GMT)

PowerShell is a very powerful management tool, and you can spend hours writing magical scripts to do all the things you want. Frequently forgotten is the PowerShell profile, a place where you can add your own functions that can provide you lightning fast access to information. We'll talk about the power a profile puts at your fingertips. I will also demo (and share) a bunch of short functions that I use frequently for common tasks. I'll show you my PowerShell profile if you show me yours.
