DevOps with Nano Servers/Containers
Windows 2016 provides two new options for delivering infrastructure and therefore applications - Nano server and Containers (Windows or Hyper-V). In this session you'll learn how to use PowerShell to automate the lifecycle management of these new options and how to integrate them into your devops driven environment.
This session is for anyone needing to understand what nano server and containers can do for them and needing to learn how to manage these infrastructure options.
Attendees will learn the differences and similarities between nano server and more 'traditional' options and gain and understanding of how containers can be best utilised on a Windows platform. They will also see live demonstrations of working with these objects and have the code used in the demo made available as a take away.
I have been working with Microsoft technologies for over 25 years having spent time in most IT roles. I have been interested in automation techniques for that whole time – DevOps is the current cumulation of that thinking. PowerShell caught my interest when I first heard about it and I have been using it since the early beta versions. I am a multi-year PowerShell MVP. I have given numerous talks on PowerShell at various events in the UK, Europe and the USA. I have written two PowerShell books: PowerShell in Practice (Manning 2010) and PowerShell and WMI (Manning 2012) and co-authored PowerShell in Depth (Manning 2013, 2015) and PowerShell Deep Dive (Manning 2013). An introductory book on managing Active Directory (including the use of PowerShell) – Learn Active Directory in a Month of Lunches was published by Manning in 2014. I'm currently working on the third edition of PowerShell in Action with Bruce Payette.
