Jeffrey Snover: "PowerShell is great because we had a series of rockstar engineers add their awesomeness to the project."

SAN FRANCISCO - Californer -- We had a great talk with Jeffrey Snover, Microsoft Technical Fellow, and CTO for Modern Workforce Transformation. Snover is the inventor of Windows PowerShell, an object-based distributed automation engine, scripting language, and command-line shell.

The Interview

Evrone:
