PowerShell is a great interactive shell and a great scripting language. That said, the feedback from the scripting community has been very clear: they want/need a PowerShell Scripting IDE.
As such, I was very happy to finally have something to say about this at my MMS talks this week. I was able to show an Alpha version of Sapien’s PrimalScript IDE with support for PowerShell! The audience burst into a round of spontaneous applause when they saw this.
Sapien will be showing this off at their booth at TechEd/Boston in June so drop by and let them know what you think. I was also pleased to see that Sapien is starting a publishing Division and their first book will be ….. that’s right – a book on PowerShell by scripting superstars Don Jones and Jeffrey Hicks! What an honor.
The new division is looking to interview authors and discuss book opportunities. Check out the details at: http://home.businesswire.com/portal/site/google/index.jsp?ndmViewId=news_view&newsId=20060428005516&newsLang=en
