The purpose of this post is to share free resources that are available in internet to learn Powershell. I feel this information is very useful to newbies’ who are willing to learn this power scripting language.
The books listed here are neither in the order I recommend reading them nor based on the worthy content they have. It is just a random listing and each one is having its own significance and importance. The list I am including here is completely free and you can download them(may be some needs registration). Also this is not the final list, I will keep adding the content when even I find it. Please subscribe yourself to either my twitter updates(@pamarths) or subscribe to RSS to stay tuned.
If you come across any other free powershell resources that are worth sharing with everyone in PS planet, please either provide the link in comments section or just email me.
