It is hard to argue that the based of knowledge created around PowerShell over the years has been something of a grass roots movement. Don Jones, a well known author and expert on PowerShell, recently wrote an article for Redmond Magazine aimed at the IT decision maker. He states the importance of Powershell training and that professional training for administrators is a must-have. Even though the article is geared towards the IT decision maker within an organization, there are some obvious take aways for the IT professional. The point of the article, in his own words, of course is the following:
The moral of the story, of course, is to get your people trained.
He takes it a bit further by saying:
Find your best and brightest, the ones who can become your Automation Makers….You don’t need to train the entire team; the enterprise pattern is shaping up as having a relatively small number of bright, adaptable IT folks taking on the role of PowerShell Wrangler.
