PowerShell Scripting Best Practices

Ed Wilson is running a series on Best Practices on his Hey, Scripting Guy blog at the moment.  I especially like today’s which is on simple scripts.  I do a lot of quick and dirty scripts that end up being thrown away at the  end of the project or incorporated into more formal modules for reuse.

Simple scripts are a very powerful admin tool and one that a lot of people don’t think about as they are conditioned into the idea that everything should be a module and other big code concepts. Don’t get me wrong – modules and everything else around enterprise level scripting are very important and a lot of my work is done that way but the quick, utility style script still has its place.
