Hi, Damian Garbus here. I’m system engineer, Powershell geek, husband and father. This is my first post on this blog and I want to tell about What is Powershell and why Powershell is not only for tech guys.
Powershell is not only for tech Geek
Powershell is a command line shell often used by system administrators everyday work. It can be used for manage IT environment, automate administration, create reporting tool etc. For example powershell can be used for faster creation mailbox for new employee, reporting some errors on servers etc.
If you search in google what is powershell, almost always you read article from tech guys, IT Administrators etc. In these article you can find many understanding words. One of definition you can find here.
It’s not all for me. Many people outside IT don’t know what is Powershell and for what they can use it. Powershell is awsome way for everybody to create tools for everyday work. When you have small company you don’t have to buy applications for creating selling reports but sometimes you can write some scripts which will create selling report every day and send it on you email address. Then one thing you have to do is read email with report and check how many your product was sold. I know, it’s big simplification but with some work it can be done. If you don’t have time to learn what is Powershell you delegate it to your IT Administrator or use freelancer to write some scripts what can be cheaper than create entire application.
For what you can use Powershell for every day?
If you use Microsoft Windows operating system you can use it for many tasks. For example I use it for faster creating Jira issue, or backup KeePass key with my password. Sometimes I use powershell scripts to get data from website and put into some files needed for work. It really can be used for many another tasks!!!
Have you already use Powershell? If so please write to what type of task in comments.
