Part of my job is doing POCs with customers to help with Azure Data Services. Anything that helps me move quicker is helpful so I’m a tad bit obsessed with automating things. I have used PowerShell for more years than I’m willing to admit to help me automate what I can. There are a lot of ways to automate things like ARM templates and DevOps, but PoSH has been my preferred hammer. As much as I love it, I’ve ran into issue sometimes with installing modules locally on folks machines and not to mention if they have a Mac. I wondered recently if Azure Cloud Shell would help make things easier, and it very much did and I’m super pumped to share! This post will help run through how to get setup to run PowerShell scripts in Azure.
