So far, we covered the very basics of Windows PowerShell. We now know the importance of an object-based shell and how an ISE helps us in building scripts. We explored the Windows PowerShell consoles and ISE snippets. After completing this chapter, you know the power of an interactive shell, how to use cmdlets effectively, how to use help, and the fundamentals of PowerShell along with building standard functions and creating cmdlets using the Visual Studio class library.
In the next chapter, we will cover Common Information Model (CIM), Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), Extensible Markup Language, COM, .NET objects, modules, and a more exciting section, Exploring Windows PowerShell 5.0.
