Tomorrow I'm taking the AZ-800 (Administering Windows Server Hybrid Core Infrastructure) exam, and I wanted to create a simple test exam quiz for myself with multiple-choice questions. This blog post will show you how to do that using an Excel file with questions and A, B, C, and D answers, including the correct answer to check on.
I run PowerShell on my Windows 11 laptop, but I also have Linux VMs and use PowerShell on those too. In this blog post, I will show you two ways to install PowerShell on your Linux machine, and yes, I know... There are different Linux Operating Systems with different package managers.

This blog post will show you how to use the PSScriptAnalyzer module which can give you some additional hints that Visual Studio Code doesn't show you.
It's been a busy week, working and watching some Microsoft Ignite sessions 🙂 But I just wanted to thank everyone who Starred is watching or forking my GitHub repository! Nice to see that you're interested in the things I post. I like sharing PowerShell-related things and giving back to the community. Have a lovely weekend!
