Speaking at PowerShell Conference Europe 2019

PowerShell Conference Europe is scheduled happen in Hannover, Germany from June 4th to 7th 2019. I am happy that two of my sessions are accepted and I will be there!

The PS Conf EU team published a list of sessions and the agenda.

Here are the session abstracts that got accepted.

We trust in the community!

50% of the pull requests in the PowerShell GitHub repository are from the community! No kidding. This alone speaks a lot about the strength and talent in the PowerShell community. Apart from these pull requests, there are several hundreds of community developed PowerShell modules in the open source that are used by another several hundreds or thousands of people. This session show cases some very useful PowerShell modules developed by the community by demonstrating real-world use cases.

Designing a distributed, flexible, and secure operations validation framework for test-in-production (TiP)

Performing Operations and diagnostics validation is a very important aspect of agile infrastructure development and monitoring. While the core principle of operations and diagnostics validation is about writing tests that are used to validate the functionality of the deployed infrastructure, it is equally important to ensure that the framework that is used for operations validation is distributed, flexible, and secure by design. This session provides insights into design of one such framework and walks through the design principles while providing real-world implementation examples. This session is not just about writing Pester tests but about making it secure and efficient to run those Pester tests for infrastructure validation in the context of Test-in-Production (TiP).

If you plan to be around or not registered yet, you can do so now!

See you in Hannover!
