Scott Hanselman is a well-known .NET and ASP.NET expert, with one of the most popular .NET blogs, his Computer Zen blog. Within that blog, a popular and asked-about content area is his Ultimate Tools list, a list of the tools he finds immensely useful in his work as a developer. Based on the popularity of this list, he recently gave a presentation on developer productivity tools at the Beantown.net user group. This video is the third in a series of videos we've captured from that hour and 45 minute presentation at Beantown.net. In this third segment of the presentation, he talks extensively about Microsoft PowerShell.
