Session 1: Configuration in a hybrid world - Fred Weinmann
As the use-cases of PowerShell proliferate, so do the way code execution is (or should be) being managed. Whether a module tries to avoid hardcoding information, parameter bloat is fought, CI/CD procedures need to be configured or individual scripts need be managed across a wide estate. Whether on Windows or on Linux.
This presentation is about handling all the complexity of all these configuration scenarios, presenting a simple and unified presentation to your code, while handling the most diverse configuration sources. Whether it is to configure modules as part of the same system as your scripts in your CI/CD pipeline or to manage script and module behavior with Group Policy, DSC, Puppet or SCCM.
Fred is a PowerShell consultant, dealing with code management and automation scenarios. In his so-called free time he runs a usergroup, speaks at conferences, contributes to Open Source Projects, is a voracious reader and mixes cocktails.
Session 2: General Q&A
As a bit of a change we're going to do a general Q&A where you can ask any question about PowerShell and anyone present can try to answer. If we don't know the answer then we'll work through the process of figuring it out, including diving into a console session or Google.
We'll show off a variety of tools and communities you can use to find answers to almost any PowerShell problem you could encounter.
