The presentation and scripts can be found here. Two questions came up which I couldn’t answer on the spot: 1) what is the load precedence of profiles and 2) what PowerShell books would I recommend.
Profile Load Precedence
The profiles are listed in load order. The most specific profiles have precedence over less specific profiles where they apply.
- %windir%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\ Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1
- %UserProfile%\My Documents\WindowsPowerShell\profile.ps1
- %UserProfile%\My Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1
