PowerCLI PowerShell PSConfEU

PSConfEU is Europe’s largest PowerShell conference and this year I had the distinct pleasure of not only attending, but also presenting! It is 4 days of non-stop PowerShell knowledge bombs in just about every area you can think of and I had a blast! If you have a chance to attend, definitely take advantage of it.

Luckily, if you missed out, all the sessions were recorded (huge shoutout to Thorsten Butz for all the hard work he put in) and are available on YouTube: PSConfEU Playlist

In this blog post, I wanted to highlight a special project that was released late last year. The DSC Resources for VMware project takes advantage of the 10+ years of engineering work put into PowerCLI and creates PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) resources which can be used in a VMware environment. The session I gave at PSConfEU gives a brief overview and then dives into how it works along with a handful of demos!
