As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve spent quite a bit of time these past few months “wrediting” – writing and editing – a book on Windows PowerShell 2.0 and automating Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2. While the book focuses on some of the great new features of R2 and PowerShell 2.0, it also focuses on fundamentals. This book is great for those who want to get into using the new features without getting too deep into the language. Even with the appendices, I tried to keep it simple so that those developers just getting into it have a simple guideline to follow.

I just got word from my acquistions editor that the official release date is May 16th, 2011. You can pre-order it from many retailers – including Amazon, Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Indie Bound, and of course through the publishing house of Wiley.

Here’s the cover to look for:
Automating Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 with Windows PowerShell 2.0

I’ve mentioned my book a bit before. You can read more about it in:

Matt and I will share some insight into the book in a series of blog posts coming in the future. So look forward to hearing more about our book!
