Packt Publishing approached me to be a technical reviewer for a book titled PowerShell for Active Directory. Over the course of three months, I proceeded to check every exercise and line of PowerShell in a virtual environment I built to test the accuracy and pick up any mistakes, typos or areas where the authors work did not make sense or portray a concept well enough for me to follow.
The book in question is actually quite good and I learned enough to get me hooked and start me down the path of leveraging PowerShell much more since.
Working in this fashion with book deadlines is actually very demanding on my personnel time. For the short term, I don’t feel I could do it again although it was a positive experience. I was clearly good as it too as Packt followed up later with further opportunities to review and even write so hopefully they saw my passion.
Perhaps in the future when I have more time, I will look to get back into this kind of thing and maybe look to write something, but not now.
