Join this webcast to learn how to create effective and modularized code in Windows PowerShell functions and filters. We explore the robust scoping rules in Windows PowerShell that enable you to fully encapsulate functions and filters and explain how you can easily reuse these functions and filters across projects. We also demonstrate how you can add your own custom functions into the global scope in Windows PowerShell, which makes it easy to assemble a library of useful utility functions available at your fingertips. Attend this presentation to receive several useful administrative functions that help you get your library started.
