In response to “PowerShell”(r/sysadmin)
I’m not sure I’d consider Powershell devops than a core Windows administration tool. Devops to me would be like Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Salt, etc. (Puppet I think would be good for a Windows person to learn.)
You can do Powershell in a month of lunches: www.amazon.com/Learn-Windows-PowerShell-Month-Lunc…
You can do the Microsoft Virtual Academy as well: mva.microsoft.com/en-us/training-courses/getting-s…
Powershell is very object oriented and pipelined, it’s not a bunch of “++1, !, +3,” style of true programming. It’s more of a “get-aduser doej”
A lot of the commands are the same syntax prefixes, like “get” and “export”.
Don’t be discouraged, envision yourself knowing this inside and out in a year, and your mind will work you toward this goal.
What, specifically, do you work with that you think can benefit from scripting?
