    #1POSIX shell

    POSIX shell
    POSIX is the acronym for Portable Operating System Interface in which its shell works. It is a set of standards codified by the IEEE and issued by ANSI and ISO. POSIX defines the API with UNIX command line shells and utility interfaces.

    "I was interested in learning a scripting language for a DevOps task which could be implemented on a work project. POSIX shell seems like an interesting solution for this project. There is a lot of information to go through, however this may be the solution we need."

    #2MS PowerShell

    MS PowerShell

    Windows PowerShell is a task automation and configuration management framework from Microsoft, consisting of a command-line shell and associated scripting language built on the .NET Framework. PowerShell provides full access to COM and WMI, enabling administrators to perform administrative tasks on both local and remote Windows systems as well as WS-Management and CIM enabling management of remote Linux systems and network devices.

    "This solution includes support for MS PowerShell but is called Windows Management Framework 4.0. Since it is inclusive of the solution needed it is a good solution for this query. The website resource does give a lot of detailed information on the solution so it is a good resource however it is general so it is not the best result for this particularly worded Query."

    Terraform enables you to safely and predictably create, change, and improve production infrastructure. It is an open source tool that codifies APIs into declarative configuration files that can be shared amongst team members, treated as code, edited, reviewed, and versioned.

    "I use DevOps tasks. I had been looking for a good scripting language. My supervisor had me try Terraform. Terraform makes it easier for me to share APIs that my team works on. I am happy with so far and think it is really great for me and my team."

    "As a beginner in the programming field, I found this site just mediocre. Yes, there is good information, but the format is not only bland but somewhat confusing. If you prefer learning from a very heavy textual format, then this would probably meet your needs. "

    "NixOps is a "tool for deploying sets of NixOS Linux machines, either to real hardware or to virtual machines." I haven't experienced an issue running virtual machines. The interface is easy too."
