Session 1: A Practical Jump Start to Administering SharePoint with Windows PowerShell

Presented by: Dan Holme

Running Time: 74 min

Windows PowerShell is the preferred tool for administering and automating SharePoint outside of Central Administration and only with PowerShell can you perform scripted configuration and certain tasks such as granular restore. So if you've been holding back on learning PowerShell, the time has come to tackle it. Join SharePoint MVP Dan Holme for a very practical, super-clear PowerShell jump start. You'll learn that you don’t need to be a scripting guru to use and understand PowerShell and you'll learn how easy it is to manage SharePoint with PowerShell.

This session will get you up-to-speed with how to learn and use Windows PowerShell in a SharePoint environment. You’ll master PowerShell fundamentals and you’ll learn how to create and report the logical structure of your SharePoint farm. The session will set you up for scripting, automation, and advanced administration tasks covered in subsequent sessions.
