  • Blog Post: Check if PowerShell snap-ins have been loaded within your scripts

    As I am releasing several scripts for VMM over the next month, the details of of each weigh on my mind during spare cycles.  One problem I thought I should solve is checking to see if the VMM snap-in has been loaded and then taking action based on the results. Turns out Jeffrey Hicks, one of my...
  • Blog Post: Excellent PowerShell Training

    Each year my manager approves enough budget for our team to attend some sort of reasonably priced training.
