Session Slides and Demo Scripts from PowerShell Conference EU 2016

I returned home from PowerShell Conference EU this morning. Wow, what an amazing event was that! Seriously, right from the opening event to each and every session, this was truly the global PowerShell conference with attendees from more than twelve countries and speakers from four continents. I had two sessions at this conference and these were very well received. I uploaded the slides and demo scripts to a PSConfEU Github repository. Feel free to use them as needed. For those who prefer, Slideshare instead, here are the slide decks. The sessions recordings should be online in a couple of weeks. I will updated this post. Operations Validation for Infrastructure as Code Demo Scripts During this session, I introduced a new concept called infrastructure blueprints that essentially package PowerShell DSC configurations with integration and operations validation tests in written in Pester. You can check out an example of this in my Github repository. This is a work in progress and I expect to make several changes over next few weeks.
