I'm doing a hands on, full day class on DSC at the Cascadia IT Conference in Seattle on March  7th (and on March 8th I'll be teaching a PowerShell Fundamentals half day class and another half day class on Failover Clustering).

Early bird registration ends on February 17th, so sign up now!

  • Programming System Tools With Go by Chris McEniry
  • DNSSEC by Alan Clegg

But I Can't Make That!

Well, you are in luck..

I'll be at Techstravaganza in NYC on March 21st talking about the basics of DSC.  

I'll be talking about DSC in depth at the PowerShell Summit at the end of April.

Then in early May, I'll be at LOPSA-East with a half-day class on DSC and a few other sessions.

And I'm doing a deep dive into DSC resources at TechMentor in August.
