PowerShell DSC, Microservices, and DevOps
Microsoft engineers Narayanan Lakshmanan and Boris Scholl dive into the technical details surrounding PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) and microservices, and how they are contributing to the DevOps revolution. Narayanan outlines how you can automate your desired Windows or Linux machine set-up with DSC, and he describes how you can accelerate your configuration spec and/or build-out by referencing the more than 300 DSC entities in the Chef community space. Next, Boris discusses how a microservices architecture can be beneficial for application development and lifecycle management. He also provides insights on microservices implementation considerations and DevOps takeaways.
