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.

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

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... :-D )

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.

PowerGUI provides some pretty good tools, FYI.
