Hi All,

I am learning powershell and I want to be a scripting guy!. I am in basic level. wrote some scripts.
Now I want your help to improve my knowledge in powershell scripting.
I prefer to learn anything by doing it not by reading it. Give me some real-time scenarios which you faced for writing script,so that I can practice in my virtual environment or in virtual Lab(Microsoft site) and improve my knowledge. Hope you people help me to grow.

Thanks in advance.

Consider visiting the Scripting Guys blog; they posted scenarios for the 2013 Scripting Games as well as past Scripting Games. Those would probably be good to start with.

Hi Don Jones,
As I expected you are the first person who replied for my post. I am a big fan of you. I like your videos and the way you are explaining things. As you suggested I will check that link. Thank you so much reply.

I'll second Don's advice. I'd also suggest looking at the questions in the forums and trying to create, or improve, a script to answer them. The final thought is to look at the things you do at work – do you work with AD or Exchange for instance, if so try starting to automate some of those tasks in a test environment
