Written by a six-time Microsoft MVP and one of the first Microsoft PowerShell MVPs with over a decade of PowerShell experience, Building Better PowerShell Code gives you easily digestible tips you can begin using immediately. The book starts with an overview of some of the most important tips the author can muster which segues into a deeper dive with dozens of examples throughout the book.  It takes you through tips such as using community modules, writing better comments, thinking of PowerShell functions as building blocks, and more. You will also see how to use parameters the right way and how to create simple logging code to easily record script activity.
