Windows PowerShell 5.1 was released in 2016 and is preinstalled in all current Windows and Windows Server releases, hence it's the most commonly used version. But in the eight years since, there have been substantial enhancements, leading up to the current PowerShell 7.4 release. Now is the time to make the move away from 5.1. But what do you need to know to adopt PowerShell 7.4? We'll explore that in depth in this session.

You will learn:

  • What's different about PowerShell 7
  • Migration strategies for moving from PowerShell 5.1
  • New features available since PowerShell 5.1
