I’m on the PowerScripting Podcast!

Podcast July 30th, 2008

I join Hal and Jonathan from the PowerScripting Podcast, along with Brandon Shell for their most recent podcast – Episode 35.

We discuss a number of topics, including:

  • How to make time to learn PowerShell
  • Using WMI
  • Integrating with Active Directory and ADAM (AD LDS)
  • PowerShell Training
  • Is there too much coverage of V2?
  • Working with XML
  • And Polymon

Thanks to Hal and Jonathan for hosting the discussion (and more importantly, inviting me!).  I had a great time talking with those guys, and as always, Brandon Shell was very informative and fun to talk with.

PowerGUI & PowerShell Script Repository

Scripting July 28th, 2008

Now this is COOL!

Joel “Jaykul” Bennet maintains the PowerShell Script Repository, which is also linked to PowerShellCommunity.org.

Now, the script editor in PowerGUI can search the PowerShell Script Repository.

I just tried it and searched for a script to send email.  I searched for mail and found three matches, chose the one I wanted, clicked on it, and it appeared in my script editor.  Nice!

Thanks to Dmitry and Kirk at Quest for this great community resource.
