The PythonNation Podcasts are provided to expand the general knowledge and access of Python, PowerShell, and other scripting languages. The Podcasts are broken down into series with each series based on a specific topic of interest. If you have an idea for a series or topic that you would like addressed, please drop us a note.
In the third episode learn how to launch a PowerShell script from Python and acquire data from a remote computer.
In Episode two of the series, we utilize PowerShell CmdLets to identify potential files of interest, in this example a set of jpeg files. PowerShell then launches a Python script and passes the path of each identified target photo. Python then processes and extracts EXIF data from each image and provides a table of results back to the PowerShell script.
In Episode one of the series, we focus on launching a Python script from PowerShell using the PowerShell pipeline to pass a short message to Python. The Python script receives the message and parrots back the message to PowerShell completing the circle. Although, this is a simple demonstration it provides the fundamentals of integrating these two platforms. Consider this the “Hello World” example of PowerShell and Python.
