Intermediate-Level, PowerShell Content Needed

There was a ‘What’s New in PowerShell v5?’ webinar recently. I found one of the questions, that was asked of the participants, quite interesting. The question was, “What skill level of PowerShell content would you like to see on” At 49%, intermediate skill level came in first. It was followed by beginner at 34%, and expert at 18%.

I get that we don’t know the skill level of those that responded, or even the number of people that answered the question. Regardless, I was excited, and I’ll tell you why. I mentioned it here first, but a large part of why I write about Windows PowerShell, is because I want to provide original and current, intermediate-level, PowerShell content.

There was a day, about a year (and, maybe a half ago) that I decided I needed to learn at least one thing about PowerShell every day – to include Saturday and Sunday. It didn’t matter how simple, or complex, it was. You see, I understood that the best way to learn Windows PowerShell was to immerse myself, as much as my regular life – the one with the kids, and my wife – allowed. I wanted to ensure I was reading and learning about PowerShell, whenever possible.

My favorite place to find content was Twitter – a bunch of people, from all over, sharing articles and blogs, and asking questions. It was, and still is, a central place to go and find some random article to encourage my learning. I still search there regularly, and now, since maybe June 2014, I even post my own articles. I don’t know who reads what around here, but I often consider that someone like me is looking for new PowerShell content on Twitter, and I want them to feel like there’s plenty, by doing my part to contribute.

I want to be an expert at PowerShell – there’s no question. But until then, I’ll keep writing for us intermediates – not too basic, or too advanced.
