Prof. PowerShell is taking roll

My weekly column that I’ve been writing for is now officially Prof. PowerShell. The column’s goal is to introduce you to PowerShell and help you get up to speed. I obviously can’t teach you everything in a weekly 300 word column, but hopefully it will be enough to get you going and if nothing else, keep PowerShell on your radar. You’re going to have to eventually learn PowerShell so avoid the rush and start now. This week’s column introduces you to the Get-Member cmdlet.

You can also find PowerShell tips in some of last Windows Tip Sheet columns.

I hope you’ll let me know what you think. You can read Prof. PowerShell at or add the site’s RSS feed. I believe you can also get the column via weekly newsletter as well if you prefer.

If you want even more PowerShell goodness, I’d also suggest getting the Windows Administration in RealTime ejournal from I write the Practical PowerShell column which solves a real-world problem with PowerShell. I think you’ll like it.

Practical PowerShell

I am writing a new monthly column for a new eJournal from RealTime Publishers. The column, Practical PowerShell, will be a regular feature in Windows Administration in Realtime. The eJournal is a free PDF although I think you have to give up an email address.

My column is intended to provide practical PowerShell solutions for typical management tasks. This month I show how to find those pesky files that are taking up too much space on your file servers. Typically the column will begin with an IT management challenge. I then present a solution and walk through how it works. The column isn’t necessarily intended to teach your PowerShell from the beginning, but you’ll certainly pick up some ideas.  I hope you’ll let me know what you think and share any challenges you’d like see answered.
