In this post, I would like to share the steps to build a fun project implementing a console-based progress-spinner that runs in a separate thread while executing arbitrary code in the main thread.
This is part two of "Graph theory with PowerShell", focussing on "Small World Graphs", with PowerShell based on (Chapter 3) of the execellent book Think Complexity 2e by Allen B. Downey.
In this post, I will walk you through the process of extending the built-in Compare-Object cmdlet to support “deep” comparison of custom objects, arrays, and classes.
Use PowerShell to monitor a download folder as a background task and smartly extract .zip files automatically as you download them.
When I try to learn a new technical topic it is easier for me to do/experience the new topic through a technology I already know about. That’s why I perfer to play around with things in PowerShell even though there might be better ways of doing the same using another technology. In this post I’m going to explore a bit of graph theory based on chapter 2 of the execellent book “Think Complexity 2e” by Allen B. Downey (in fact I’d highly recommend any of the books in the “Think…” series some of which I might cover in future posts).
