Microsoft has released 2 new resources to make IT Pros’ lives better:
Script Browser – IT Pros can search, download and manage 9000+ TechNet script samples covering ALL Microsoft IT products from within their coding environment. Script Browser even supports offline search so users can download all interesting scripts and search them when they do not have internet access.
Script Analyzer – we use the Powershell AST technology to scan IT Pro’s script and provide suggestions to improve IT Pros’ script quality and readability.
Why you may want to check out these resources?
The 2 new resources are relevant to ALL IT Pros. Whether you’re a Windows Server IT Pro, or SQL Server IT Pro, or Exchange IT Pro, etc, you will find it useful.
The 2 new resources can make IT Pros’ lives easier by teaching how to automate IT products and improving their automation quality. Your audience would love you for the sharing.
They were newly released a week ago. Not many people know about them yet.
Feel free to share the resources, you are not only helping your IT Pro peers, but also helping Microsoft products, TechNet, and PowerShell.

While the Microsoft Technet Forums have become the base for a very vibrant community, it’s not really THE platform to build, share and maintain documentation.
The Technet Wiki fans know that the TNWiki is a very interesting platform that perfectly complements the Technet Forums for that purpose.
Most of the people publishing on the Technet Wiki like to get an overview of their articles, once in a while.
Although the Wiki offers nice features, it’s very hard to get a concise, quick overview of your articles.
One of the tricks to achieve this, is using a personal tag. (eg. pgtag 😉
But as you can see, its not a condensed view.
Therefore I created a powershell script that does it for you.
