Powershell – Useful Resources

One of my aims at the start of the year was to improve my Powershell and scripting skills. I run a few Google searches looking for resources and had plenty of results returned, but finding the ‘wheat from the chaff’ proved difficult. So I turned to twitter and asked the SQL community using the #SQLHELP hash tag. As an aside if you have a SQL problem and need an instance response and you can formulate a question in less than 140 characters add #sqlhelp to the end of your post and you’ll get a whole bunch of help…I digress. I got a whole heap of replies and I thought I would formulate the URLs in a txt document for future reference, then I realised I should post them on my blog so everyone can use them and here they are:
