This will be our seventh meetup.

If things go right, we will raffle off a year of Premium Annual Membership to ITProTV ( and everyone will also receive a free 30-day trial and some swag.

We will also have some pizza and drinks.

To Start we will have a short video from ITProTv, and then Chris Burns from GCIcom will take us through his journey from Powershell, To Powershell DSC through to Azure Automation DSC. During the presentation, we will go through configuring an IIS (Or AD - not decided yet) server using the three mechanisms and what Azure Automation brings to the table.

A little bit about Chris and where he works:
A Principal Consultant for Microsoft Technologies for GCIcom. My specialism is in UC technologies and I am now developing our Public Cloud offering.

Keen supporter and trainer of Powershell and all things automation

GCIcom are a UK wide IT solutions provider. We provide everything from IT infrastructure to Microsoft Unified Communications and support.

We can then talk and discuss more Azure and then pick the topic for the next meetup.

Nigel Frank International will also be around to talk to anyone who is either looking to hire or be hired!

Hope to see you there.
