The time from deciding that you need to make a change to having it in production is called cycle time.

Come learn how PowerShell makes this happen.

You’ll Learn

* Core PowerShell
* Functions, Scripts and Modules
* Flow & Control
* Serverless PowerShell and Azure Functions
* Tool Making in PowerShell
* PowerShell v6.0
