PowerShell is an object-oriented scripting language used for scripting and automation. It is heavily used in managing Azure and Windows workloads. However, in the last few years, PowerShell has evolved into an open-source, cross-platform language and has seen continued growth amongst the IT Community.
In this lab, you will create a PowerShell script and learn how to start using PowerShell by using the built-in help system to run commands and explore how they work.
Upon completion of this beginner level lab, you will be able to:
- Check the PowerShell version in the console
- Look up commands in PowerShell and learn how to use them
- Create and run a PowerShell script
Familiarity with a programming language will be beneficial but is not required.
