Learn #PowerShell from the Basics to Becoming a Coding Star with @Veeam

IT administrators are being tasked with more and more.  So one way to do more with less is to figure out ways to automate repeatable tasks.  And that's where scripting comes into play. 

If you're not familiar with scripting (or in this case, using PowerShell), don't worry.  We're about to point you in the right direction to get you started, thanks to the folks at Veeam. 

The Veeam team has created a three part video series with almost 4 hours of video to help get you going with learning PowerShell.

And best of all, it's free!  Check out the videos by making your way over to Veeam by visiting their Web page, Veeam Learn PowerShell.
