On 21 October we will be running a FREE workshop covering PowerShell DSC and Automated Lab with Jan-Hendrik Peters. Come along, learn about both of these really interesting technologies, get your foot in the door of configuration management and have some fun with your fellow techies!

Let’s take a look at what will be covered and what you will learn from this awesome workshop.

* Introduction to DSC: We cover the history of DSC, the key components and the what the building blocks of a DSC configuration are;

* Push vs Pull: You will gain an understanding of both modes and the differences, when to use one over the other and the new Windows Server 2019 way of doing things vs the current implementation and setup a pull server from scratch;

* DSC In A Release Pipeline: Find out how to use DSC in a release pipeline;

* Advanced DSC: Learn advanced techniques for using DSC in a release pipeline and work through an actual customer scenario using this approach and get started generating configuration at a larger scale;

Tickets are limited to 20, yes that’s right. The workshop is limited to 20 people only!

What will you need?

All of the labs will be hosted on Azure (thanks to Jan-Hendrik!), which means you’ll just need to bring a laptop (and your charger) that has a browser! Operating system doesn’t matter.
