[EN] PowerShell? Few free lessons.

It’s always good time to learn Powershell. Even you (or me) don’t really interesting now about it, soon we will be. Because technology is changing, because new systems and application from and for Microsoft technology is more, and more focused on ‘this kind of management’. So why nnot start to learn how it works, what we can do, where we can do and what we can do with Powershell version 4.0

[EN] PowerShell Impressions

I’m not a fan of PowerShell. Yes, not yet. But sometimes PowerShell is necessary – even not for work task, but maybe for learn something. Yesterday I just tried to use PowerShell on my laptop (with Windows 81. on board). And as many of you know I’m a little strange person – using Spanish version of systems, even living in Poland (ok, sometimes apps are in Catalan or Icelandic or other languages).

And I open my PowerShell Gui. Because I never use PowerShell on this machine, when I use Get-Help command I got answer (in Spanish):


Pict. 1 – Having not any Get-Help library. Do You want to execute Update-Help cmdlets?

Crapy. What will happen if I would be able to work with Spanish version of PowerShell? It’s a standard for my command line and sometimesis not easy to use:


I was able to choos only one, right option: {S} that means Yes, update for library just started (in light blue part of screen. Of course I was a little aftraid, because I’m ready for work in Spanish Windows version, I’m not good enough to work with Spanish PowerShell version. But fortunatelly after update I saw:


Pict. 2 – Standard English based PowerShell Get-Help library.

Simple things make me happy!
