Az Powershell on a M1 Mac

So you've done it, you bought yourself a brand new M1 Mac and now you've realised you've never used one before, and by you I mean me... 

So let's get started, firstly you need to Homebrew 

now that you have homebrew installed, it's time to install Powershell

brew install --cask powershell

when new versions of powershell are released you can update with

brew update
brew upgrade powershell --cask

Now that we have powershell installed, next let's install our Azure az module to be able to script some azure tasks.

pretty straight forward, I don't see why I would rewrite good content, sometimes just finding the right documentation is a slog.
