Customizing your PowerShell Environment Recap
Another great meetup thanks to all who came out!
Dave started us out by showing us how he reverse engineered some encryption libraries and created a powershell wrapper to encrypt/decrypt some database rows, thanks Dave!
Matt McNabb (@mcnabbmh) showed us how to be more efficient in our everyday PowerShell Admin sessions using. We went over Profile best practices and tips/tricks, $PSDefaultParameterValues, PowerShell Prompts, secure credential storage / usage, argument completers, and extending your editors. I’m already more productive!
We also brought up Pester, the PowerShell testing framework which brought a lot of interest, look for a future talk around Pester and how to get started with testing. Start here if you’re interested in Testing/Pester!
Matt has lots more links and resources in his Github repo related to the talk
See something that we missed? Have something else to contribute?
