Who needs the unlovely VBScript anymore?


What was so unlovely about it? It worked just fine. Since most front-end developers are familiar with C# or Java, it makes it easier for them but PowerShell is just a different way of doing the same thing you could do in VBS.

Huge push for PowerShell and yet PASS completely screwed the pooch with the lack of PowerShell sessions at this years Summit with a precon, a spotlight and another regular session.

Hail The Powershell
Nice and to the point editorial
I was there in Teched, attended all the powershell conferences
I am still in the information-overload stage, so much good information
Also got exposed to F# and the Kanban!!!
Now I just need to brush up my Klingon!!!

So few PASS sessions on PowerShell? That is a great shame.

Jeff, if you think that PowerShell is equivelent to VBA/VBScript, then you haven't tried PowerShell hard enough. Sure, you can convert from VB to PowerShell, but PowerShell does so much more...

Agreed. I find Powershell to be surprisingly set-oriented for such a procedural/operational language. In many ways it's the most SQL-like language Microsoft has ever released to production. (besides actual SQL of course... )

I will admit that it's nice to be able to return a result set just by using a "SELECT" in a WMI query in power shell.

Good article. I would appreciate it if someone could bring me up to speed on this point: Does PowerShell itself (v 3.0?), or a third-party product, offer PowerShell debugging capability that is the equivalent of that found in the VS.NET IDE for VB.NET\C# ? (I regard such debugging capability as essential, not just a nice feature.)

Take a look at the PS development tools from Idera, Quest and Sapien.
