PSPowerHour – Shell of an Idea AMA

July 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

Join PowerShell author, speaker, and MVP Don Jones for a look in the deep, untold history of PowerShell, a topic he’s been exploring for his upcoming book, “Shell of an Idea: The Untold History of PowerShell” (https://leanpub.com/shell-of-an-idea). Learn how Intel prompted the ultimate creation of PowerShell, how a hermit crab contributed, and how Microsoft’s purchase of Hotmail highlighted the need for PowerShell. It’s a fascinating dive into the shell’s past, which can really inform you about its present and future.

This will be followed by a live AMA (Ask me Anything). Ask your questions on twitter ahead of time using the hashtag #ShellofanIdea or submit the online here (link coming soon)

Don Jones has been in the IT industry since the mid-1990s, and working with PowerShell since before its 2006 launch. He’s a co-founder of PowerShell.org and PowerShell Summit, and was named “PowerShell First Follower” by PowerShell inventor Jeffrey Snover. Don has written dozens of IT, business, and self-improvement books, including the first-ever published books on Windows PowerShell.
