    Great PowerCLI introduction (thanks for the mention).
    I love the Exercises, there should be more like these. I believe you learn more by trying to figure out how to do something.
    Perhaps also worth mentioning, the PowerCLI Online Reference.(http://www.vmware.com/support/developer/PowerCLI/PowerCLI501/html/index.html)

    Thanks for the post! Just the motivation I needed to break the duck on Powercli 🙂 but to do automation, powershell skills are needed so I found this place (http://www.powershellpro.com/powershell-tutorial-introduction/) for powershell tutorials in case anyone else is like me and is green when it comes to PowerCli and PowerShell.

    For on-the-go help with PowerCLI the iPhone app is an excellent reference: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vpowercli5-reference/id489731144?mt=8&ls=1 (its not mine but I do use it)
