Look inside

Windows PowerShell in Action, Third Edition is an end-to-end revision of the definitive guide to PowerShell. Written by language designer Bruce Payette and MVP Richard Siddaway, this rich book offers a crystal-clear introduction to the language along with its essential everyday use cases. Beyond the basics, you'll find detailed examples on deep topics like performance, module architecture, and parallel execution.

about the technology

In 2006, Windows PowerShell reinvented the way administrators and developers interact with Windows. Today, PowerShell is required knowledge for Windows admins and devs. This powerful, dynamic language provides command-line control of the Windows OS and most Windows servers, such as Exchange and SCCM. And because it's a first-class .NET language, you can build amazing shell scripts and tools without reaching for VB or C#.
