The random thoughts of Richard Fennell on technology and software development

Devils with Arms and Cats - the new name for DevOps?

Great day at DDDNorth yesterday, hope everyone enjoyed it. Thanks to all the team who helped during the preparation and on the day.

The slides from Rik Hepworth and my presentation on ‘Living the dream - Real world DevOps with Azure and VSTS’ are up at Github

We were a late stand in session  to cover for a presenter who could not attend on the day. So I hope it was not too much of let down, that we were not the speaker on the agenda, covered a different subject and did not match the title the spell checker converted out session title too. Though ‘Devils with Arms and Cats’  is maybe a good term for DevOps?

As to the grok talk I did at lunchtime on developing VSTS extension with VS Code, there are no slides; but look at these past posts, building VSTS tasks with Powershell and putting a release process around vsts extension development they are on similar subjects.

ALM Ranger’s release DevOps Guidance for PowerShell DSC – perfectly timed for DDDNorth

In a beautiful synchronicity the ALM Rangers DevOps guidance for PowerShell DSC has been release at at the same time as I am doing my DDDNorth session ‘What is Desired State Configuration and how does it help me?’

This Rangers project has been really interesting to work on, and provide much of the core of my session for DDDNorth.

Well worth a look if you want to create your own DSC resources.
