  • Julie - Day 3

    Day 3 of Month of Lunches and I feel like I’m getting a firm foundation. Today, the subject was how to use help. I’ve always been a huge fan of help files. I’ve had very little formal training in my IT career so I have to learn through...
  • Julie - Day 4

    Day 4 and we are now stringing together commands. We do this with something called a pipeline. I found this easy to remember as each section you string together is separated by the pipe "|" character. We jump right in with learning how to export...
  • Brian - Day 6

    I think the title of this chapter is rather ingenious, at least from my perspective. I've always been interested in scripting/automation, but timid at the same time because I could never read a script and tell you what it's doing. I actually sat...
  • Brian - Day 7

    I have to say, I feel like this chapter kicked it up a notch. I thought I had a pretty good handle on the pipeline after chapter 4, turns out I was wrong. This chapter gets into how/why the pipeline actually works. To generalize this (hopefully not too...

  • Brian - Day 8

    Formatting can definitely sound like a boring subject to most of us, it's actually quite useful. For me, a large part of my job is documentation. If you don't have any documented processes on how to create documentation (especially when you're...
  • Off-Topic: Looking for a few good speakers

    One of my secret passions has long been SQL Server; I've worked with the product since v4.2 and was the original conference chair for SQL Connections back in the day. I ran the development and training practice for an MS Solution Provider who focused...
  • Brian - Day 9

    This chapter, I think, will be a huge time saver when put into practice. I've sort of preached to people in the past about the power of searching (because it thoroughly annoys me to see people scrolling through hundreds of emails scanning each one...

  • Julie - Day 5

    It has been a crazy week including traveling to a conference for two days and I have fallen behind in my month of lunches. I'm using my weekend to get caught back up without the distractions of my office. I was intrigued to learn about product specific...
  • Julie - Day 6

    Today’s topic is Objects in PowerShell. Don lets the learner know right up front that this is a key concept and critical to fully understand. I like how he recognizes that different learners benefit from different explanations. One sub chapter explains...
