PowerShell for Developers: IT Pros need to share

A session at SharePoint Saturday Austin

Saturday 2nd March, 2013

9:30am to 10:30am (CST)

If you remember the days of stsadm being your only option to administer SharePoint through the command line, you probably did the same thing I did…avoid it. However, since PowerShell was introduced with SharePoint 2010, my thoughts have changed. PowerShell is just as useful for developers as it is for admins.

We’ll talk about what PowerShell is and why you shouldn’t ignore it. Then we’ll get to the good stuff, the snippets. Need to rebuild your developer Virtual Machine? Come see how. Is your Developer Dashboard enabled? Here’s how to do it. I’ll even show you how to score some points with your admin when prepping a WSP for deployment. Finally, we might even dig into some SharePoint 2013 improvements in PowerShell!
