Practical PowerShell for IT Admins of SMBs


I’ll be the first to admit that I have never really seen much of a use for PowerShell where I work, mostly due to the size of the company.

Administering a site of about 100 users I know them all by name and what there needs are from there IT Dept. Everything I have read about PowerShell either involves some kind of repetitive task or bulk upload of information and is impractical on a smaller scale. Other PowerShell examples highlight tasks that I can do manually just as easily and the time saved by using PowerShell versus doing it manually is minimal. This is frustrating for me because I want to use PowerShell, I want to see what the fuss is about, so I am taking a challenge to figure out what I can use PowerShell for and of course write the code for it.

So with that I’m starting my most ambitious project to date, to blog about this subject for a period of time to make it a series of worthwhile articles!

Wish me luck
