Summer is over and school is back in session. Even better yet, we're back in session! Time for some PowerShell conversation, discussion, and general awesomeness. We've discussed it before, but it's officially released: PowerShell 3.0
PowerShell 3.0 and the CIM cmdlets
This month we are happy to have Tome Tanasovski to discuss PowerShell 3.0 and the CIM cmdlets. CIM is the new standard that is used to connect to WMI. With DCOM disabled by default on Windows Server 2012, it's extremely important to learn the new management story. We'll be digging into this new standard along with a whole slew of new PowerShell 3.0 cmdlets and features
