In the course Scripting with PowerShell, participants learn to use PowerShell to manage Windows Servers and applications such as Internet Information Server and Exchange. PowerShell is a cross-platform scripting language with which tasks can be controlled and automated from the command line.
The course Scripting with PowerShell starts with a discussion of the basic commands in PowerShell and how to use the Integrated Scripting Editor. It also explains the use of CmdLets and parameters and the use of PowerShell in a dotNet environment.
Next the syntax of PowerShell is treated and the operators, variables, data types and control flow structures in PowerShell are discussed.
Attention is also paid to calling functions, creating functions and handling errors. Accessing files, directories and the registry is part of the course as well.
PowerShell can also be used to remotely control and configure servers and applications. WinRM and WSMan are used for this. The course also pays attention to how to approach a REST API and how to process XML and JSON data.
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is the infrastructure for managing data and operations on Windows Operating Systems. The course covers how PowerShell can be used to control WMI when requesting System Information such as Performance Counters and setting object properties.
Finally attention is also paid to a number of advanced PowerShell topics such as performing administrative tasks related to Active Directory and IIS. After completing the course Scripting with PowerShell, the participants are able to automate common administrative tasks with simple commands and ready-made scripts.
This course is intended for Windows system administrators and other interested persons who want to use PowerShell to manage Windows Servers and applications like ISS and Exchange.
To participate in this course general skills in working with computers and working knowledge of Windows is required.
The theory is treated on the basis of presentation slides. The concepts are illustrated with demos. The theory is interspersed with exercises.
After successful completion of the course participants receive an official certificate Scripting with PowerShell.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
