Powershell is essentially a more powerful replacement for COMMAND.COM that plays nicely with the Windows architecture.

It would normally be used mostly by administrators -- I have VERY rarely used it as a developer -- but as a developer you might be asked to write "cmdlets" for Powershell (unlike regular executables, these can be loaded and executed in the actual Powershell process without starting up a new process).

You can list all the commands with simply
    get-command

Pretty much all the real basics are what you would expect -- you could do "cd", "dir", "pwd" just like in the regular shell.   You can do variable assignments like
$a = 4
or
$b = dir
and then
write $b (to see the directory you stored)
or do logic like


if ( $a -eq 4) { write $b }

I'd recommend going through an introduction like
