English version of Windows PowerShell course book available for download


Due to its great popularity, we have decided to translate the Windows PowerShell course book to English. So if your mother tongue is not German, maybe you are interested in the English version instead. The book gives you a short introduction with many exercises about the interactive part of Windows PowerShell as well as some hints how to use other objects like WMI, .NET or COM objects like Excel or Internet Explorer.


The book is available for free and you can share it with all your colleagues or friends if you leave it as it is. The books can be used with or without the demo files available at this blog as well.


Breaking news: We have now released the second book. This time we focus on server administration with plenty of examples and exercises for your selfstudy. Many free partner extensions are mentioned, too. You can download both books in a single download without any registration here.

    The book might be in English but access to it is via a web German web page.

    No joy.

    Yes, you are right, unfortunately. But the page is simple enough to find the “click here” button and at the end, you get the English book for free. And with the registration, we would be able to inform you about updates and new chapters of the book. Like scripting a speaking parrot on your desktop letting you know when a critical service stops? Sounds interesting enough to give it a try?
