Yah, I’m a powershell studio user for a few years as well.
And the other resources are options, however, visual studio 2017 community edition is not a good solution for folks to do company work with, as that violates licensing.
per the MS site for the community edition for organizations:
“An unlimited number of users within an organization can use Visual Studio Community for the following scenarios: in a classroom learning environment, for academic research, or for contributing to open source projects.
For all other usage scenarios:
In non-enterprise organizations, up to five users can use Visual Studio Community. In enterprise organizations (meaning those with >250 PCs or >$1 Million US Dollars in annual revenue), no use is permitted beyond the open source, academic research, and classroom learning environment scenarios described above.”
So I would be very careful about reccomending that approach to anybody, unless they are doing work for themselves and not for a company. (nobody wants to deal with a bsa audit)
Powershell studio is a cost (granted not a gigantic one compared to visual studio) and for those just beginning, or trying to prove to management the usefulness.
