In this session, learn how to build PowerShell scripts that function as reusable, modular tools.

Take your PowerShell scripting to the next level – no, three levels up! – by learning to build scripts that function as reusable, modular tools. Leverage built-in shell functionality so that YOU work less, and see how to put those tools to use in practical, real-world situations like trend reporting, inventory reports, and more. A little bit of scripting or programming background can be helpful in this session, but you'll learn most of what you need – and get Don's examples to take home – in just one short session.

You will learn:
  • The proper practices and patterns for building native-like tools
  • How to use tools to create incredible reports
  • The right way to handle errors, prepare for debugging, and more
