My DSC session is up at TechDays Online 2015 On-Demand

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

Speaking at Microsoft Techdays on the 5th of February

On the 5th of February I will be presenting at Microsoft’s online Techdays event. My session is entitled ‘How are you going to deploy that? A look at configuration as code’

“It does not matter what platform you are developing for, you are going to have to deploy your product in the end. Too often in the past the question of deployment has been an afterthought. But it need not be this way, there are tools available that can help with deployment of your code and importantly the provisioning the underlying systems they need too. In this session we will look at Visual Studio Release Management’s vNext release pipeline seeing how it can leverage Desired State Configuration to provision environments and deploy applications”

There an loads of great sessions spread cross the three days of this online conference, why not register for the event online now? I am sure there will be something of interest.

PowerShell Summit Europe 2014

I find I am spending more time with PowerShell these days, as we aim to automated more of our releases and specifically with DSC in PowerShell 4, as I am sure many of us are

Give that fact, the PowerShell Summit Europe 2014 at the end of the month looks interesting. I only found out about it too late and I have diary clashes but might be of interest to some of you. Looks like a really good hands event.
