I've been studying PS scripting for 2 months but still feeling like overwhelmed with lots of information and i can't write some complex script. I know that you will ask "How come you want to write complex scripts while you studied only for 2 months?" ... The answer is that i've learned all of the basic stuff such as cmdlets syntax, aliases, getting properties and methods using get-member, customizing my profile,.. etc ... Then, to feel more excited, i also finished all the looping and flow control techniques. Bang!! i wrote couple of nice real life scripts and they work properly. However, when i jumped to study Functions, Advanced Funtions and Advanced Parameters, i felt my head completely lost. Simple functions are easy as i can write them with no problems.
Here are my random study resources:
TechNet About_ Topics
Windows PowerShell Scripting
Windows PowerShell Cookbook 2nd Edition
As you see, i study from several different resources. The reason because sometimes i find, for example, the cookbook is mentioning examples that talks to expert scripters not to beginners and the same with PS scripting book. The TechNet About_ Topics is good but it is lacking real life examples.
I AM LOST and CONFUSED! PLEASE HELP !
