PowerShell Tool Building - Come Learn How!

Tue, 13 Aug 2013, 19:00 - 21:00 (Add to calendar) GMT
1125 Sanctuary Parkway , Alpharetta, US

A script is something you create to automate some process. It may be long, is usually a bit ugly, and makes assumptions about how it will be run. Tools, on the otherhand, are clean, powerful works of art that can be shared with others. In this presentation we will take a script and turn it into a tool by converting it into an advanced function, adding cmdlet style help, creating paramaters, and accepting pipeline input. Then we will create a module to house our new advanced function and even create our own format specification. You will walk away with a new tool in your toolbox, the knowledge how to create your own tools, and even some ideas on what tools to create. This presentation will be based on material covered in the Learn PowerShell Toolmaking in a Month of Lunches by Don Jones and Jeff Hicks available from Manning.
