Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunchesby Don Jones
Synopses & Reviews
In Windows, there's a control panel, dialog box, console, or wizard to manage every component of a system. There are thousands of them—so many that it can be nearly impossible to keep track of all the locations and settings one needs to administer Windows effectively. PowerShell provides administrators with a single, unified command line from which they can control and automate every aspect of Windows.
Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunches is an innovative tutorial designed for busy administrators. Author Don Jones has taught thousands of administrators to use PowerShell, and now he brings his years of training techniques to a concise, easy-to-follow book. Just set aside one hour a day—lunchtime would be perfect—for an entire month, and readers will be automating administrative tasks faster than they ever thought possible.
Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
