    OK, I have been intriduced to Powershell in the new role and have a few training sessions coming up.
    (We currently use it to manage out Exchange Mailboxes).

    Using my own initiative I had a bit of a google around and found an interesting guide in the Microsoft Virtual Academy.

    Just out of curiosity has anyone used the MVA? It seems quite deatiled so I have created an account and was thinking of going through the training for Powershell. Would this be the sort of thing I could also put on a CV?

    Thanks guys,

    I mentioned it a while ago, to little or no fanfare ;)

    It seems that Microsoft are losing followers with their changes to their exam formats and the loss of the highest levels of certs. The MVA though is a great resource for the new technologies and I've found it a great help in my MCSE studies.

    The MVA is packed full of interesting and well put together resources, its a shame that Microsoft are letting themselves down in so many other areas at the moment.

    I've been working my way through the Server 2012 stuff for my MCSA.

    Used it for a load of Office 365 stuff, I keep an eye on it for new content once in a while - its a very handy resource for free.

    Although I'm also on the same thought lines as Josiah and Arroryn with the MS disillusionment with their current game plan.
