A friend of mine back in Canada, Sean Kearney is a MVP in PowerShell and an all round good guy. He is hosting an introduction to PowerShell on TechNet (details below). As I have posted in the past, there are great resources for PowerShell available including a FREE book for DOWNLOAD: and don't forget one of the best resources on Microsoft itself either , blogs.technet.com/heyscriptingguy
To celebrate the season, he has also created a Christmas Carol for the scripting guy!
