Stupid PowerShell Tricks for the .NET Developer

A session at CodePaLOUsa 2012

Friday 16th March, 2012

11:30am to 12:30pm (EST)

You suck at PowerShell. You really do. That's ok, you're a developer, and it's not a tool for developers anyway, right?

Wrong. PowerShell can be saving you time, energy, and more importantly aggravation. Regardless of your development domain - web, the enterprise, devices - PowerShell is there to help you get your work done.

Come spend an hour experiencing practical, time-saving PowerShell hacks you can start using today. The tricks range from the mundane to the brain-exploding, including:

  • Integrating Mercurial or GIT with PowerShell;
  • Using .NET libraries interactively from the console to process an image;
  • Running unit tests on a remote computer as part of the local build;
  • Automating change to source code, then scaling it to affect a massive code base;

Automate the stupid parts of your development, one-liner at a time...
