I found this site:
which seems to have some good information (via the links on the right sidebar).
You might look at a couple of the free e-books available as well, such as the two listed below.
Effective Windows Powershell and The eBooklet Series: An Introduction to Microsoft PowerShell
I would recommend the following eBooks and eBooklets:
- Mastering PowerShell, a
20-chapter eBook by Dr. Tobias
Weltner (PowerShell MVP). This is an
English version of Scripting mit
Windows PowerShell – Der
Einsteiger-Workshop (656 pages)
- Effective Windows PowerShell,
free 50-page eBook by Keith Hill
- Two Windows PowerShell Workbooks
including demo files and script
examples (Introduction to Windows
PowerShell (44 pages) and
Administrative tasks with Windows
PowerShell (78 pages) by Frank Koch
- PowerShell Day 1, a 10-page
eBooklet by John D. Cook
- An Introduction to Microsoft
PowerShell, a 28-page eBooklet by
Don Jones (PowerShell MVP)
Try the Scripting Guy http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/resources/qanda/sept06/hey0926.mspx
You can get started now with a free eBook titled ‘Mastering PowerShell’. The eBook was written by long time Windows PowerShell MVP Dr. Tobias Weltner and can be found on www.powershell.com in HTML or as a downloadable .pdf.
Look for an updated version of Mastering PowerShell on www.PowerShell.com very soon. The updated eBook will include Windows PowerShell v2 information and will be free to all members of www.powershell.com (membership to the community site is also free).
It might be worth concentrating on Powershell 2.0 as it will be released soon.
The CTP is currently available, more information here.
I strongly recommend #powershell on the FreeNode IRC Network. Several of the MVPs are in regular attendance and questions tend to get quick and excellent answers that include not only how by why.
The PowerScripting Podcast is pretty good; polished and listenable. I second PowerShell In Action, too. Great book.
We are starting a Script Club here, too – getting together and scripting with a bunch of other geeks is a great way to bounce ideas around and learn.
The BEST way to learn is to get your hands dirty. Pick a task and work through it, Googling as necessary. As new as PowerShell is, there are TONS of great blogs and resources out there.
