I will be speaking at Leeds DevOps on the 21st of July on the subject of Desired State Configuration (DSC).
‘In the Windows world, due to its API based architecture, deployment is too often not as simple as copying an EXE and updating a text configuration file. Desired State Configuration is an attempt to ease the pain we suffer in this space. Providing a set of tools that can be leveraged by any set of deployment tools whether in a Windows or heterogeneous environment. In this session we will look at what DSC is, what resource are available and how to write your own’.
The event is at the The Node in Leeds, tickets are free and are available over on Eventbrite or meetup.com
If you came to our re:Build and re:Ignite events last week and want more information on the subjects we covered, remember that all the sessions from both the Microsoft Build and Ignite events are available at http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2015 and http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Ignite/2015. On these sites you can find videos of the sessions and slide stacks, hours of family viewing.
Did you miss content from Microsoft Build and Ignite events?
Well you can catch up on Channel9, but we at Black Marble are running free round up events on the 20th May in Leeds.
Why not come and talk to Black Marble and Microsoft staff who attended the events?
To register go to the Black Marble events site.
Mid May is a busy time for me presenting-wise:
- On the 12th/13th I am presenting at Techorama in Belgium
- And on the 14th I will be presenting at a Microsoft/GreyMatter event at Microsoft’s Reading office.
And after that there are also the Black Marble Re:Build and Re:Ignite events. I am sure I will be involved at those, but we have to wait for a couple of week until after Build and Ignite to find out what we will be talking about.
There are spaces I think at all these events, why not have a look.
Black Marble are hosting, at our offices, a Microsoft event on the 18th March on ALM with Visual Studio & TFS 2013. This is a repeat of the sell out event we hosted in the autumn.

A couple of weeks ago I presented on DSC and Release Management as part of the Microsoft UK TechDays Online 2015 event. All the sessions from this three day event are now available on demand at TechDays Online 2015 on-demand sessions.
You do seem to have to register/login to see the content, so I can’t deep link to my session, but browsing the catalogue is a good idea there are some great sessions
