VSCode on Raspberry Pi for PowerShell Development

VSCode on Raspberry Pi for PowerShell

This is a post that I started more than a year ago. A goal was to be able to use a Raspberry Pi as a PowerShell Development environment.

No. Host Integration Management Agents were deprecated when Microsoft released Forefront Identity Manager as the successor to Identity Lifecycle Manager (ILM).
