Video Description

Windows PowerShell is a scripting language especially designed for system administration and it lets you manage computers from the command line. PowerShell DSC enables you to deploy and manage configuration data for software services and also manages the environment in which these services run. The main goal of this video is to teach you how to configure, deploy, and manage your system using the new features of PowerShell v6 DSC with Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.

This video begins with the basic fundamentals of PowerShell DSC, covering the architecture and components of the Desired Sate Configuration. Next, this video familiarizes you with sets of PowerShell language extensions and new PowerShell commands. Later, this course helps you understand and create DSC configurations with the help of practical examples, and also teaches you to create DSC custom resources for your custom applications. Finally, you will learn to deploy a real-world application using PowerShell DSC. By the end of the video, you will be more familiar with the powerful Desired State Configuration platform, which helps you achieve continuous delivery and efficient management and easy deployment of data for systems.
