For a couple of years, Microsoft has had two command-line tools for managing Azure resources. Azure PowerShell and Azure CLI. Both tools are cross-platform and open source. Both are frequently updated and support the fast pace of the Azure changes. You can use them locally or in the Azure Cloud Shell. They provide a similar user experience; however, they are not exactly the same. Some differences are easily visible, some differences happen behind the scenes. What is the right tool for you? Do you need to pick one, or are there any benefits in using them together? Join us to learn about their capabilities, and pros and cons of using them, to help you make a choice.
