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.
