About the course

This intermediate-level course teaches the concepts of using PowerShell Core with Linux.

We will cover everything from installing PowerShell on Linux (including Visual Studio Code) to learning how to use cmdlets and variables. We’ll then dive into using the more advanced components of PowerShell Core like strings, arrays, hash tables, and logic flow.

Finally, we’ll go into how to accomplish some everyday management tasks in Linux using PowerShell. These include remote administration, installing Docker, working with SQL Server, and managing Azure resources.
