PowerShell 3.0, Part 2 of 4: Variables, Functions, and Objects

with Doug Ware

In this course you’ll learn all about PowerShell Scripting. We’ll start off by looking at how PowerShell treats variables and how you can use basic variables like strings, arrays, and hash tables. Once you understand this we’ll move on to functions, so you can codify your functionality into easily reused pieces. Next we’ll look how functions can work with the object pipeline and how you can control the scope of your variables and your functions to prevent your scripts from colliding with each other. Once you understand all of that we’ll take a look at types and objects before we close off with a look at collecting input, effective error handling, and good comment practices.
