PowerShell.org is the driving force behind the Association for Windows PowerShell Professionals, a professional development association designed to help make Windows PowerShell a more reliable, efficient part of organizations’ production environments. The Association has a mission consisting of three main components:
- Education: We seek to provide cutting-edge education focused on the practical, real-world use of Windows PowerShell in business environments
- Certification: We will provide professional, peer-reviewed verification and certification of our members’ Windows PowerShell knowledge, skills, and abilities
- Reflection: We facilitate an expert-driven peer review process to foster community and professional standards
Association membership is a wonderful way to maintain a strong connection with the broader Windows PowerShell community, to show your professionalism with Windows PowerShell, and to demonstrate your commitment to operational automation in a Microsoft-based environment.
At this time, AWPP membership benefits are not planned as an a la carte offering, meaning benefits will be open only to AWPP members. However, our script peer review panel will have public access options at no charge.
Full Members are actively working with Windows PowerShell, and are helping to forward the community’s understanding of the technology. They are active in mentoring others and take a leadership position in automation within their organizations. You join by registering for a PowerShell Summit event (it consolidates the information we need into one place), and members choose to be affiliated with either North America or Europe. Membership is $800, and includes:
