PowerShell Community Content Guide: Separating the wheat from the chaff LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

The PowerShell Gallery is the de facto standard for shared PowerShell content, and it contains hundreds of PowerShell modules and scripts.  Since anybody can contribute content to the Gallery now that it is no longer in preview mode, some content it offers will be great, and other content…not-so-much.  Not using this community content is simply not an option anymore, so how do you get the most value from it with the least amount of effort and risk?  What content is available that can offer you tangible value today?

This session will demonstrate the importance of the PowerShell Gallery and the related PowerShellGet module, discuss why you might want to stand up your own internal Gallery mirror in your organization, and walk you through some highly-useful content that is available in the Gallery today.

Session takeaway:


  1. Not using community content is not an option anymore.
  2. It's really easy to stand up a PowerShell repository in your organization.
  3. There is a ton of value to be realized in PowerShell versions 3, 4 and 5 by simply installing modules that are readily available on the PowerShell Gallery today.
