PowerShell Demo Tools

Several people who attended my PowerShell talk at SPC09 have been asking for the “Start-Demo” Script I used to demo PowerShell commands without having to type them in front of a live audience.  

The script I used is really just a slightly modified version of this one

iI recommend just using the version provided by the PowerShell team.

Also, I recommend pairing this with the Sysinternals tool ZoomIt to allow for zooming and underlining elements on the screen.

This is a free tool available from the Sysinternals website: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/default.aspx

PowerShell Scripting Editor

If you’re anything like me, you like to script in an organized fashion. Notepad just doesn’t quite do it for me, so be sure to check out the new PowerGUI Script Editor (comes with PowerGUI), which has built in intelli-sense and color coding!
