Love to see work

This Audiobook provided a great foundation in understanding how to get started with Powershell. There were many examples explained in detail, as well as real world information to keep in mind going forward. Core syntax and functionality was covered, including how to create simple scripts, which can be customized and expanded on as needed. I look forward to the next course covering more advanced concepts.

I'm smarter now.

Being that I have zero experience with PowerShell, this course was definitely was a great introduction to it. With this audiobook I could see the potential of what I could accomplish with PowerShell and also how much control PowerShell gives the user with its integration with the .NET Framework. I'm looking forward to continue learning and develop my skillset.

LEARN POWERSHELL!

Excellent information on PS and all the available tools. Amazed how much I learned from a 1hr course! Covers so many areas of PowerShell and uses hands on examples. Great course and super awesome for creating your own Aliases (for Cd\ CD ..) or whatever you like. Really gets under the hood of PowerShell and it's features/functionality. Was learning so much I wish the course had more in it!

Doing Lunch with PowerShell

He knows how to pass the information for a PowerShell beginner.

You are the best Powershell Instructor seen so far.
I like how you teach it starting from the basics.
Although you need to add more course contents.

You will actually learn it.

I took this course while I was at work so I was unable to really focus on looking at the additional resources, but with just the lectures it was a really informative course. A lot of time and care went into explaining things, but it was also straight to the point and not over complicated. Easy to understand.

Whoa - comprehensive!

Very informative but brief. Good for the foundation aspects. If there is anything that is mentioned that you dont understand, you will have to go out and do some research as he does seem to just glide over these topics.

Better than expected

I like how the instructor goes into the history of PowerShell and how it ties into the .NET Framework. Definitely helped me understand why this will be much more powerful then batch file scripting once I get the hang of it.

Overly pleased with the book!!!

So far, so good. At least I can understand the man, i.e. he speaks English. The other courses, although the narrator spoke English, the accent was such that it was difficult to comprehend exactly what he was attempting to explain. We'll see as time goes on.
Addendum -best PS course I've ever taken. Went thru the entire thing and really learned a lot. I am now far more comfortable with PS than ever before. Thanks ZW.

The Complete Beginners Guide for PowerShell.

Excellent BOOK!! If you've never scripted before take this audiobook. The instructor does an awesome job of explaining how PowerShell works in a way that is easy to understand and follow along. I've taken several other courses on PowerShell and become confused and never finish but this one is very clear and straight forward. Great course if you're trying to learn how to script with PowerShell.

Not Puzzled AnyMore

This is an amazing beginners's course for anyone who wants to get acquainted with PowerShell. I am working with PoSh for a half a year now after I've finished the course, and I can certainly tell that this was one of the most valuable skills I've acquired for my work environment. Imagine someone who has no idea how to use PoSh, and another person, able to get info and apply commands to hundreds and hundreds of domain workstations with a single and powerful snap - it will make you superior and above other admins in your workplace.
To the course author, I would suggest adding a little something about PowerShell Jobs and Handlers, because if one is already powered up by PowerShell, those will launch that person to the stratosphere.

PowerShell in Action

I knew nothing about Powershell and this book is a definite must for newbies like me. Everything was excellent, from presentation to examples, this instructor is easy to understand, did not stumble through topics, and is very knowledgeable. Note that I'm using a MacBook, but was able to find installation packages for pwsh from a quick google search. And even though I knew nothing about this topic (never even opened it or scripted before), if you're somewhat technical, you can figure out how to manipulate some of the examples to conform with Mac OS. I'd highly recommend this course!

The Joy of Coding...

The flow of the content is well organized. Zach first goes over the concept and relevant introduction information for each subject. Then, follow with simple examples to demonstrate how to use the PowerShell component.

Comprehensive reference for PowerShell

I thought this audio book was a very informative and well-put-together for those wishing to start out in Powershell. The lessons seemed to be relevant for any version of Powershell you might be running and were clearly structured and expressed. Excellent.
