DSC vs. “The Others” - A Song of Configuration Management
In Game of Thrones’ current season, humans battle for control of the Seven Kingdoms, yet they may end up banding together against “The Others”. How does this relate to PowerShell? If you love DSC, but want to look at DSC’s integration with other config management tools, then this session is for you.
    You know me as “thedevopsdiva”, or maybe you know me as the co-author of the DSC Book.  In any case, you know that I have a penchant for using DSC for configuration management.  In this session, you will learn some basics about terminology used in other configuration management tools, such as Chef, Puppet, and Ansible.  You will learn the similarities and differences between the DSC platform and these other tools, and I’ll explore the transition between pure DSC and “the others” using DSC for configuration management.

Define, Develop and Deploy DSC Resources
Even though there is an abundance of DSC resources, there is always room for more. Perhaps there is some Windows feature or setting that hasn't been covered yet. Or you have a home-grown application that needs a resource. In this demo-heavy session you will learn everything you need to know about designing and deploying a DSC resource. We'll start with the legacy DSC resource model and finish with a modern, high-quality DSC resource. Lots of code, best practices and demos abound.
