Creating Class-Based PowerShell Tools
In the developer world, classes are a normal part of the landscape. But it wasn’t until recently that PowerShell Pros could easily take advantage of classes. This feature was introduced in PowerShell 5.0. Microsoft’s primary goal was for IT Pros to use classes when developing DSC resources. But you can use classes outside of DSC in your PowerShell scripting and toolmaking. Veteran PowerShell MVP Jeff Hicks will provide a quick introduction to classes and then guide you through the process of incorporating a class into a PowerShell tool. You’ll quickly realize how easy it is to incorporate classes into your PowerShell toolmaking and begin to ponder the possibilities.
