For the May 2016 Mississippi PowerShell User Group virtual meeting, Microsoft MVP Steven Murawski will be presenting “Acceptance Testing DSC with Test-Kitchen” on Tuesday, May 10th at 8:30pm central time.
DSC is awesome, but only if the resources and configurations do what you want them to do. How do you know? If you are relying on DSC to tell you when it didn’t do the right thing, you are in for a world of hurt. Configuration management is the world of “trust but verify” and Test-Kitchen gives you a common framework for testing your resources and configurations and use Pester to validate that your servers end up in the state you expect.
Steven is a Principal Engineer for Chef (the automation platform for the new IT) on the Community Engineering team and a Microsoft MVP for Cloud and Datacenter Management. Find out more at http://stevenmurawski.com/about.
