Azureandbeyond on Github.com

Hey folks,

in the past I’ve provided several PowerShell code snippets related to Azure infrastructure and security topics on my blog. As things are getting more and more complex and maintaining code in blog posts is really anoying, I’ve decided to move on. As of now, I’m going to provide all my PowerShell code on my Github.com AzurePS repository. Make sure to follow the repo in order to always get up to date information when things change.

Happy testing and stay tuned,
Tom
