Abstract: Windows PowerShell is Microsoft's new interactive shell, scripting language and programming language. Come learn why we concluded that the world needed another language, how we created a 3rd generation composition system levering object technology, why we think it provides the widest dynamic range of any language, how we combine imperative and functional programming elements; how we leverage object-flow technology to reduce programming, how we were heavily influenced by Bash, Perl, VMS DCL, AS/400 CL, TCL and C# and how millions of users are using PowerShell.
