In this episode, we have our first returning guest, Steven Judd! Steven gets things started off right by talking about the process of turning a command into a function and how PowerShell provides value each step of the way. Steven convinces Jordan that RegEx is powerful and shares some tips for using it more. We learn about living off the land, how solving a problem can help you understand the technology that you are creating a solution for, and the three most important PowerShell commands. All this, and more, in this wisdom-infused episode.
