For our May 2019 Mississippi PowerShell User Group virtual meeting, Chris Gardner will be presenting “Lean on me: Managing dependencies in PowerShell” on Tuesday, May 14th at 8:30pm central time.
When writing PowerShell scripts and modules we often want to make use of external functions and commands so that we don’t have to duplicate existing work, however ensuring these dependencies are available on the systems running our code isn’t always straightforward or obvious. In this session we’ll look at a variety of methods of handling dependencies in PowerShell modules and scripts, from ensuring you have them when developing, enabling testing in Continuous Integration tools, and getting them to your endpoints where they are needed.
Chris Gardner is a CDM MVP and DevOps consultant with over 5 years’ experience working with PowerShell. He has recently been focusing on using DSC to configure Windows for a variety of purposes, particularly when provisioning dev/test environments in Azure. Chris is a regular speaker at PowerShell user groups in the UK and international events.
