This year I’m a speaker at the Dutch Microsoft TechDays conference. I have two sessions (of 25 mins each) in which I talk about DevOps related topics. The first one is “Getting started with PowerShell for Release Management”. It is a session which is actually targeted at Developers who are not yet familiar with PowerShell. PowerShell gets more and more important in a world where the boundaries between classic Development and Operations silos disappear. Developers will need to be more aware about the way their stuff needs to be deployed and Operations engineers need to cooperate with developers in order to provide an environment which works flawlessly.
That is the reason I like to talk about PowerShell, because it is already playing a big role in scenarios as described above.
The session is in Dutch, and so is the slidedeck… Nevertheless I wanted to provide some very useful links to get started with PowerShell and Microsoft Release Management
