I pretty much work out of a PS console and the ISE most of the time. Never had much formal training, but I’ve managed well enough to make a respectable showing that the Scriting Games the last couple of years. I’m an AD/Exchange admin, but I’ve been getting more and more programmers coming to my cube for help with Powershell and regex.
We use Quest Active Roles Server here (I’m an AD engineer), and the AD management plugins are really awesome compared to just the ActiveDirectory import module for PS. I spend most of my days scripting in PowerGUI to automate processes in ARS.
Good to know there are FReepers out there doing the same stuff.
