September DevOps Meetup


Jason Stangroome - PowerShell v4 Desired State Configuration

Microsoft very recently announced that Windows Server 2012 R2 and PowerShell v4 will ship Desired State Configuration as mechanism to declaratively define the components to be installed + configured on a Windows system, and then automatically apply that state to a set of machines or detect variations in existing deployments.

Jason will talk about how it will work, how you will be able to use it, and what you can do today to prepare.


About the speaker: Jason Stangroome has years of experience bridging the gap between development and infrastructure with his feet firmly in both camps of the Microsoft ecosystem. He has a passion for Release Engineering, or more simply, delivering software to production frequently and reliably. Since its inception PowerShell has been an important tool by which he strives to achieve this lofty goal.

    my daughter is graduating high school for the September meet. It doesn't matter what I do, I just don't seem to be able to attend :( Is anyone recording these? It would be awesome to watch what happened even if I couldn't join.
