With PowerShell, you can automate tasks with scripts without having to learn the complicated ins and outs of programming. After you familiarize yourself with PowerShell's intuitive syntax, you'll apply your knowledge by designing and developing scripts for lots of daily situations IT personnel find themselves in every day. You'll then end with learning how to build a large project to automate server deployments from scratch written completely in PowerShell. In Part One, you'll be brought up to an intermediate knowledge level of PowerShell by exploring the ins and outs of core concepts with PowerShell's intuitive syntax.

Who Should Read This Book
This book is for IT professionals and system administrators who are tired of clicking around in the same GUI and performing the same task for the 500th time this year. It can also be for DevOps engineers who are struggling to automate new server environments, perform automated testing, or automate an entire continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) build pipeline. No single demographic benefits the most from PowerShell. The traditional job role of a PowerShell user is the Microsoft system administrator in a “Windows shop,” but PowerShell tends to fit well in the tool belt of any IT operations personnel. If you’re in IT and don’t consider yourself a developer, this book is for you.
