Ed Wilson Talks About Desired State Configuration In PowerShell v4

Join us as Ed Wilson, "The Hey, Scripting Guy!", discusses the new Windows 2012 R2 / PowerShell v4 feature Desired State Configuration:

Desired State Configuration (DSC) in Windows Server 2012 R2 PowerShell enables you to ensure the components of your data center have the correct configuration.  DSC is a declarative model that leverages Cmdlets and your experience with PowerShell to enable autonomous, idempotent (repeatable) and transparent Deployment, Configuration, and Compliance of Windows resources.  Learn how Desired State Configuration in PowerShell enables an IT Pro, Developer, or a fabric controller to define the exact configuration of target nodes (computers or devices) and prevent “configuration drift.”

    There is no better speaker on scripting that the Scripting Guy himself. And the Scripting Wife is always super to chat with.
