Azure’s core priority is to be world's most trusted, secure, and global cloud and a great place to work. The PowerShell team continues to establish PowerShell script as the automation language for the public cloud. Security, ease of development, and diagnostics are key values of PowerShell adopted by many customers and Azure services internally and as externally customer facing features.

PowerShell is Open Source (via GitHub), cross-platform (Windows, Linux, and macOS), cross-cloud (Azure, AWS, GCP), and both a scripting environment as well as an interactive shell. We continue to invest in PowerShell as a modern shell enabling customers to be more productive as well as a secure and capable script language used by millions of users daily.

In addition to PowerShell feature development, bug fixes, and test coverage, the PowerShell ecosystem includes a rich set of tooling that continues to be developed based on customer and partner feedback. For example, the PowerShell Visual Studio Code extension is heavily used as the premiere development environment for PowerShell script, PSScriptAnalzyer is leveraged by the VSCode extension as our canonical linting tool, as well as new scenarios like integrating machine learning with the shell.
