Has anyone got any good recommendations for books or any other resources so that I can stop limping through PowerShell and get a bit more fluent with it?
Same here, you can see how much a tool PowerShell can be, from scripting tasks in MDT, Active Directory, Exchange etc.
I have been meaning to look into this for some time [complete PowerShell novice here] but I never got around to it.
A quick Google throws up this site:
Link 1: PowerShell Tutorial for Beginners - Introduction | PowerShell Pro!
Links at the site:
PowerShell Parameters, Objects, and Formatting
Variables, Arrays, and Hash Tables
Conditional Logic Using Loops
PowerShell Functions and Filters - The basics
PowerShell Scripting with WMI (Properties)
PowerShell Scripting with WMI Part 2 (Methods)
PowerShell Scripting with WMI Part 3 (Reports)
Managing Active Directory with Windows PowerShell
The first of these:
Link 2: PowerShell Tutorial - Windows PowerShell Console | PowerShell Pro!
Is called: PowerShell Tutorial 1: Configuring the PowerShell Console [Looks like it might be a good place to start?]
Don Jones' and Lee Holmes' PowerShell books are all really good. I'll post some more links when I get home, but in the interim you may find the following thread useful.
To start with I would get the PowerShell Cookbook, 3rd Edition and Learn Windows PowerShell 3 in a Month of Lunches, Second Edition and watch the video below.
