Meeting Announcement for March 26th, 2015

Posted by Lido Paglia on March 14, 2015

We’re really excited to announce our special meeting coming up on Thursday, March 26th. Joining us in person will be PowerShell MVPs The Scripting Wife, Teresa Wilson, as well as Steven Murawski of Chef Software. While we may have other special guests drop by Steven will be presenting a talk on PowerShell Desired State Configuration, ‘Intermediate DSC – Building DSC Resources’. If you’re in the Philadelphia area and interested in PowerShell you do not want to miss this special meeting!

Intermediate DSC – Building DSC Resources

While there are a lot of DSC Resources out in the wild now, you’ll likely still have a need to create a custom resource. We’ll dive into how we can use our existing PowerShell skills to develop DSC resources. After that, we’ll touch on some more advanced patterns for ensuring proper operation of our DSC Resources – including testing DSC resources with Pester.
