One of the thing that I hope to achieve in Y2017 is that I want and will be maximizing the investments of the SAPIEN PowerShell Studio license. If you are reading this article before 2nd January 2017, please take note that SAPIEN Technologies, Inc. is presently running a holiday promotion and you will get 20% of the total purchase of any products from their website.
I will pen down the process of me adopting this new tool other than the regular PowerShell IDE that I often used for writing PowerShell scripts. Do take note that, the articles will be broken down into small articles as to bring some focus onto certain functionality that is provided with the tool.
The above is the dashboard once you launch SAPIEN PowerShell Studio 2016 and I am running version 5.3.131 which was updated lately.
I personally feel that the whole interface is designed in a way that it is comforting for Developer who have been using Visual Studio all these while to start adopting PowerShell Studio.
So for this series, I set a purpose in making using of PowerShell Studio to start writing scripts along with GUI for one of the internal deployment tool so that anyone including those that is not technology savvy could simply follow some simple steps to build up a demo environment for them to demonstrate to all our prestigious customers.
PowerShell Studio offers a variety of templates which is gear to different usage in different scenario. For my case, I am out-right trying to build a GUI based project therefore I went ahead to select that project type as per selected.
Similar to Visual Studio and other IDE tools, provide a Project Name and select the Project Types that it has to offer. I have chosen this as a Single Form project because I want to ensure that the first version is made as simple as possible instead of complicating things.
Here is something that is unique to SAPIEN PowerShell Studio, it went on to provide a better experience to the coder / scripter / programmer where it allows you to choose the various Form Template. All these little things does helps!
After a few clicks, all the base files are being created as part of the selections and we are all ready to start inserting codes in!
So far, I am really happy with the interface that PowerShell Studio 2016 has to offer and I am going to continue to invests more time to rip out all the goodies that has been built into this IDE!
Till the next post…
