PowerShell

Enhance your productivity and enable rapid application development

My colleague at Lab49, Doug Finke, PowerShell MVP, wrote an excellent PowerShell book. The book seemed perfect right away:

Windows Powershell for Devlopers

The “For Developers” part really drew me in.

One of the best tricks in the book is embedding PowerShell in the GUI.  Its not hard to do.  This can be an easy win for power users of your WPF application.  Bailey Ling, another Lab49er, added Powershell to Snoop after reading Doug’s book.  He blogs about it here.

I personally now use PowerShell to coordinate my personal builds, restart my webserver and do WIP checkins to git all at once with just an F5.

Everybody developing in Windows should read this book.
