Where Do I Start with PowerShell?



This morning I set out to get some information about getting started in PowerShell for a coworker. Rather than spend a bunch of time searching for different sites I threw the question out to the SQL Community on Twitter via #SqlHelp. The response was so overwhelming that I decided I at least owed it to the SQL Community to get it all written down.

Thank you to everyone who supplied a link, you are what keeps the SQL Community great!

So here is everything that came in broken out by category:
