Introducing the top five Hey, Scripting Guy! Blog posts in 2015

Summary: See which Hey, Scripting Guy! Blog posts were the top five in 2015.

Today I feature Honorary Scripting Guy and Windows PowerShell MVP, Teresa Wilson, aka The Scripting Wife. Take it away Teresa…

Hello everyone, with over 700 new posts a year on the Hey, Scripting Guy! Blog, the number one thing I hear at conferences and user group meetings is that it is practically impossible to keep up with the blog. I happen to have an RSS feed that comes to Outlook, so I am able to keep up fairly well. The exception is when I go on vacation, or am otherwise not as connected to the Internet as I might wish.

Anyway, in case you are wondering, or perhaps because you want to ensure that you did not miss out on the very best Hey, Scripting Guy! Blog posts, I did a little research and came up with the top five posts for 2015 (based on number of views).

The results are much as I would predict considering the content on the blog. The Hey, Scripting Guy! Blog is all about Windows PowerShell in three major areas:

  • Community and learning
  • The latest and greatest
  • Specific tasks  

The top post was a surprise to me because it was one I wrote about learning Windows PowerShell. The third most viewed blog for 2015 was about cool stuff in Windows PowerShell 5.0 and Windows 10. The second, fourth, and fifth most viewed posts were about specific tasks and how to do them with Windows PowerShell. Without further ado, here are the top five blog posts for 2015:

  1. Weekend Scripter: The Best Ways to Learn PowerShell
  2. Use PowerShell to Create Scheduled Tasks
  3. Cool Stuff about PowerShell 5 in Windows 10
  4. Use PowerShell to Create ZIP Archive of Folder
  5. Update or Add Registry Key Value with PowerShell

Wishing you a scriptastic new year!
