Script Download Counts

December 1, 2016

PowerShell

I am now tracking the download counts as of the first day of each month. This will allow those who contribute scripts and tools to track the counts so they have the data for their community contribution data reported for CTPs, MVPs, vExperts or employer requested data.

At the bottom of this article is a table showing the differences in download counts so anyone can see just how popular a particular download is.

I dug up my old conference presentation slide decks where I talked about the scripts in 2013 and 2014. Some of those slide decks had download counts. Thought you might be interested in seeing some historical data.

I have asked my fellow CTP Jim Moyle for help in how to better present this data, if there is a better way.
