To celebrate the launch of his new course, PowerShell v3 New Features, Hicks is challenging TrainSignal readers to solve PowerShell puzzles all week long.
How the contest works:
-Every day this week, we’ll post a question from Hicks on our blog at 10:30 a.m. CST. All of the puzzles will be based on an out-of-the-box PowerShell v2 session (in case most people don’t already have v3) and can be answered with a one-line command, but you have to figure out how to determine the solution.
-Once you’ve solved the puzzle, send your answer, name, email address and phone number to dana[at]trainsignal.com with “PowerShell Challenge” in the subject line.
-We’ll announce the correct answer on the blog the following day, along with the new question.
-View the official rules.
-A randomly selected daily winner from the pool of people who submit correct answers will receive a TrainSignal T-shirt.
-If you submit correct answers every day of the contest (Tuesday-Friday), you’ll be entered in the grand prize drawing to win a copy of Hicks’ PowerShell v3 New Features course!
Ready to impress us? Let’s kick this contest off with Hicks’ first question.
Question No. 1:
How many out of the box cmdlets in PowerShell v2 use the Computername parameter?
