There is no denying that as IT Pros we are writing more ‘code’ than ever before. I like to think of this an an evolution – If you cast your mind back 13 years to 2007 when PowerShell first made an appearance, many of us were just coming to terms with using single cmdlets to perform tasks instead of clicking GUI buttons. Over time, cmdlets became one-liners which in turn led to PowerShell scripts all the while helping us automate repetitive tasks in a predictable manner with orchestrated runbooks being a lot more commonplace today.

Hello from the bunker! I assume most of you will be reading this blog post from my future, and hopefully the world has returned to something closer to “normal”. By normal, I mean there isn’t a pandemic going on and people can leave their houses. As I write this blog post, I am about a month into the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 and I haven’t left my house except for trips to the grocery store for what feels like about 20 years.
If your familiar with my writing, you know I'm a huge proponent of Office 365 administrators learning and using PowerShell. While it may be true that some admin tasks are easier to accomplish with a GUI, I'm strongly of the opinion that doing as much as possible in PowerShell will help build invaluable skills.
