AWS/GoogleCloud and harnessing PowerShell (One Shell to rule them all)

Heads up….. The cloud is ready.

There is alot of fun to be had with different Platforms and PowerShell grew up on the mean streets of scrutiny, much like myslef and we are much alike in our flexibility to adapt and automate anything, although I am sure PowerShell probably doesn’t need me as much as I rely on it’s abilities to be context sensitive to my tab key.

Looking at the featured image i used for the article it is clear to see a lot of platforms have embraced PowerShell with a favorable amount of cmdlets. JUST THINK OF THE AUTOMATION POSSIBILITIES!

Okay, so to warn you ahead of time, I maybe diving into all the cloud crowds shortly to give myself an expanse of elbow room when scripting solutions.

Stay informed and do not forget to Get-Help!

This is for amazon webservices:

Install-Module -Name AWSPowerShell

This is for GoogleCloud:

find-module -Name googlecloud | install-module 

This may may only possible after you enable and trust the repositories.

Take Care Citizen!

Learning when and “Where”.

learning your way around the shell is really important. the “where-Object” is like the GPS of the pipeline and to elaborate on the pipeline a little is a one way train to get you to the solution you need.

here is an example.

where GPS

I set this to select the first one to help trim the image. There are 3 properties to navigate these service entries.

I used the pipeline to give you an example of the “|” pipeline so you can understand the flow of things. the object(s) are declared and sometimes processed before the pipeline. then more things can happen.

Look below for an example:

The pipeline is the directions in which you mold your data.  you put that with some select-object & other commands like format-list, ConvertTo-html, Export-csv, & Out-File.

So I can’t wait to see what you have waiting to travel down the pipeline! See you around the city!
