Hi everyone, my name is Don Jones, and I’d like to introduce you to PowerShell and DevOps Global Summit 2016. Summit is unique annual event for the global PowerShell and DevOps community, and for 2016 we were fortunate to have Pluralsight help us capture some of the amazing presentations.
You’ll find more than 30 breakout sessions and general presentations, representing some of the best of what Summit has to offer. You’ll hear from PowerShell MVPs, product team members, and community enthusiasts. And most importantly, you’ll explore incredibly deep topics that simply don’t exist anywhere else.
Some of the major topics that we will cover include:
Want to peek under the hood at how Desired State Configuration works?
Want to learn about advanced debugging techniques in PowerShell 5?
Want to learn what DevOps really looks like in a real organization?
Want to see the latest about domain-specific languages in PowerShell?
All those and more were covered at PowerShell and DevOps Global Summit 2016, and thanks to Pluralsight you can watch them at your leisure.
Before watching these sessions, you should already be pretty familiar with Windows PowerShell, and we have several great courses to help you master those fundamentals.
I hope you’ll join me for this unique experience, brought to you by PowerShell.org, DevOpsCollective.org, and of course, Pluralsight.
