Your Skype Powershell Cheat Sheet: Useful Powershell commands you can run in Skype for Business 2015 and Lync Server 2013

Hi All

I am a passionate Powershell and command line junky. I think that started with my first job which was Unix based and so I had to learn quickly the art of the commandline. Ever since then, I have tried hard to live by the mantra that "Real Men Don't click" :). While that is not 100% the case with me these days, as I seem to spend so much time in Visio and Visio without a mouse is hell, I still try to use the command line (Powershell or CMD) as often as I can. As part of that mentality, and being a person who is always struggling to remember useful tidbits, I tend to keep a cheat sheet of useful commands and to this cheat sheet all the time. This is a cut down version, but I plan to keep adding to it over time. I hope you enjoy.


PS May the force be with you
*Is it difficult to tell I am excited about the upcoming Star Wars movie due for release in December?*
