18:15 - Doors Open
18:30 - Introductions
18:15 - Rob Sewell - Turn Your Checklist into a Pester Test
Pester is a TDD tool for developing PowerShell scripts. It can also be used as an Operational Validation tool.
We all have checklists that we use during deployments, server builds, morning checks or to follow the company process for Change Management or such-like. These normally rely on manual human intervention and as we know humans are fallible.
Lets PowerShell this and remove the tired human form the equation
Join me and I will show you how to turn your checklists into Pester Tests so that you can automate the validation of your infrastructure and provide a HTML report to give to management or add to documentation
