MVPs Don Jones and Adam Bertram on Pester


Slack Chatroom




Chatroom Highlights

<knuit> ## Adam, what sort of pipeline do you use for your deploys? Is it strictly code or handles the entire infrastructure stack?

<Vern_Anderson> don't forget to ## in front of questions

<timhaintz> ## Is Pester scheduled? As in scheduled task or user driven?

<drewjanderson> ## when using it to test infrastructure, could I use it to ensure that the deployment team deployed their IIS web app properly as well as the DB is connecting and such? Or am I just looking at the wrong tool?

<stephenowen> ## could you expand on what mocking is and why I'd wanna do it?

<knuit> ## Don: any big plans for the IT Ops news & talk podcast? I see the first episode launched a few weeks back.

<cjschroeder> ## mocking is similar to simulating?

Chatroom Highlights

<jaykul> ## What about ARM?

<jcotton> is ## for questions?

<gavin> ## @halr9000 did you find a goat to come on the show as a special guest?

<jcotton> ## jsnover needs more edge in his life

<jaykul> ## PowerShell is dating bikers.

<sqlvariant> ##Jeffrey, where were y'all hiding Ken Van Hyning all these years?

<itadder> ##jeffrey where did you get inspired to bulid powershell?

<halr9000> ok, if you have q’s, then as sqlvariant has shown, please add ## to the front!

<jaykul> ## Is that all?

<jaykul> ## ARM support?

<jaykul> ## SSHRM

<jcotton> ## remember OneGet and the legal team? :stuck_out_tongue:

<jcotton> juneb: prefix questions w/ ##

<juneb> ## Please tell us more about the governance model.

<itadder> ## how did legal allow MIT license?

<pscookiemonster> ## Were there lessons learned working with legal/folks unfamiliar with OSS?  I know Chef offers a webinar for legal folks, it seems like it would be helpful for large orgs like Microsoft to help sell and teach this

<juneb> ## Will the roles of team members change?

<jaykul> ## How can I get paid to work on open source powershell? :-P

<jaykul> ## I second Rich's question: what's with the release timing?

<juneb> ## When will core help be open-sourced?

<jaykul> ## wait, is that why CIM?

<kilasuit> ## Can we get an explaination on the Powershell RFC Process for changes ##

<jcotton> ## since we're now taking comments, is the team aware that some nuget packages (like Microsoft.Management.Infrastrucutre) are missing XML doc files?

<ngetchell> ## For bugs should we still use uservoice, connect, or github issues now?

<FoxDeploy-Stephe> ### We noticed version 6 on PowerShell for Linux, when can we expect ver 6 on Winders ###

<beefarino> ### is there any PowerShell features that don't work in PS Core?

<powerschill> ## For Linux services would you expect to use Get-Services or a new cmdlet like Get-LinuxServices?

<sqlvariant> ##This is why we need Out-DataTable to be in PowerShell core!!  :slightly_smiling_face:

<texmandie> ## when might we see remoting to Azure/Office 365 tenants from Mac/Linux?

<itadder> ## will powershell run hurd

<FoxDeploy-Stephe> ###I need mah winforms in Linux, can we get System.Windows.Forms ports to linux plz

<jcotton> ## my thing about XML doc files

<jaykul> ## yeah but what about rasbian

<gavin> ## Raspbian!

<bitzbyte> ## Yes, it was around Raspbian/linux

<gavin> ## NEED ARM!

<jcotton> ## need xml doc files in all the nuget pkgs

<richprescott> ## Sooooo, how do I get PowerShell on my Chromebook?

<juneb> ## Do we use UserVoice or GitHub issues?

<beefarino> ## will we be able to organize assets in our modules for different platforms?  or will module authors be required to manage that on their own?

<bladefirelight> ### will script block loging work with syslog?

<sqlvariant> ## Well SQL Server is on Linux so they have a business case :champagne:

<jim> ## will we be able to organize assets in our modules for different platforms?  or will module authors be required to manage that on their own?

<richprescott> ## what is next for Snover and team?  e.g. Drawbridge, rewriting kernel, on-premise DSC mgmt system

<beefarino> ## e.g., right now I have to manually load 32 or 64 bit native dlls in my modules; will I need to manually load linux vs windows as well?

<dougfinke> ## any thoughts on deeper PS integration with Python etc, beyond strings?

<itadder> ## will get a restapi  for AD, and will we get Join domains cmdlets for powershell on mac

<dagryph> ## OOH. DSC using powershell on linux, instead of the separate DSC package???

<JasonMilczek> ##Have there been any advancements in DSC on Linux?

<kilasuit> ## DSC will we see a revamp of the DSC for linux to kill off python ##

<JasonMilczek> ##Are you aware of any other vendors writing psmodules for Linux right now?

<richprescott> ##Snover, was PSDirect one of the drivers for PSnix?  Being able to manage Win/Nix on Nano server Hyper-V with one language

<JasonMilczek> ##or MAC?

<itadder> ## will we see modules to manage bind9 or dhcpd or other services or MYSQL?

<JasonMilczek> ##Forgive me if this was already answered, but can we now powershell remote to Linux?

<itadder> ## do we require !#/usr/local/bash

<organicit> ## will there ever be a means to #! powershell in a script

<itadder> ## what about text enconding

<dougfinke> ## what can we expect in the next 6, 12 months

<jim> ## Yes, upcoming roadmap??

<itadder> ## what about an update to the conhost terminal in windows ? Will it support more then 256 colour?

<richprescott> ## ONE MORE!  What's next for Snover and team?

<sqlvariant> ##Ask about Ken Van Hyning (SQL Tools team) where were they hiding him?!?!

<Vern_Anderson> ## What question is he up to? One thing on an island?

<Vern_Anderson> ## Oh you guys don't ask the last question any more?

<FoxDeploy-Stephe> ###Whats next, will they take DIR away from us?

<richprescott> ## As of PS5+, does Write-Host write to stream or no?

<FoxDeploy-Stephe> ###Found it

<jasonmorgan> ## Is the redirect operator modified in linux or does it behave as per normal?

<bitzbyte> ## Wouldn't this be the role of .NET Standard??

<r_keith_hill> @itadder the hard part is that other than ASP.NET http://ASP.NET Core there is no presentation stack for .NET Core.  VSCode gets a pass because it uses Electron / Chromium / Html / JS

<ebekker> http://electron.atom.io/apps/

<ebekker> And you can actually write Electron using C#:  https://github.com/kexplo/electron-edge

Tonight on the PowerScripting Podcast, we talk to Narayanan Lakshmanan from the PowerShell team about DSC



Guest - Narayanan Lakshmanan



Chatroom Highlights:

<JimB_> ### for a DSC noob, how well does it compare with Puppet?  Linux guys are pushing and I am not too familiar with it.  Does an IT shop need both?

<marc_carter> ##DSC noob here too...any suggestions or some practical examples to gain some familiarity?

<alexandair1> ## when can we expect to get resources written by other product teams?

<stevenmurawski> ##Will Test-TargetResource tell you what's deviating if it fails?

<justpaul> ## will MS require the various teams to provide DSC resources (aka stop-ship, like they did with powerShell cmdlets)

<stevenmurawski> ##When will the DscResourceDesigner's Test-DscResource handle more complex schema.mofs?

<stevenmurawski> ##What's failing is the wave resources that you've released fail to validate with Test-DscResource

<stevenmurawski> ## How far downlevel will WMF5 be supported?  2008R2?

<stevenmurawski> ### What is N for WMF5?

<alevyinroc> totally unrelated…on win 8.1, how would one get past “access denied” when trying to use location services (like this: http://www.verboon.info/2013/10/powershell-script-get-computergeolocation/)

Guests - Julian Dunn


Chatroom Buzz-

<13Stuwee> ## If DSC and Chef are simular and I haven't used either, why would I learn Chef over DSC at this point?

<0halr9000> ## tell us more about configuration management of some "non-traditional" nodes like the network and storage hardware that you mentioned earlier

<13Stuwee> ## Do you use PSH within Chef?

<13Stuwee> ## please igonre if already asked.  Does it work with clients or just servers. Does it have a client install piece?

<13Stuwee> ## what about "what clients are supported", XP, Win7 Server 2003 etc...

<0organicit> ##As an enterprise why should I consider Chef over Puppet.  Sorry if this has been addressed

<13Stuwee> ## what about cost?

<13Stuwee> ## if you have a run list and one thing fails, how is the admin notified that it failed, how easy is it to recover?

<13Stuwee> ## how many cookbooks exist today and how ofter do new ones get added/updated?

<13Stuwee> ## if the cookbooks are community created/driven, how is the quality of the cookbook verified?  Does anyone validate the cookbook?

<13Stuwee> ## how long has Chef been "in the business".  In other words can I trust it to be around for the long term in light of DSC?

<13Stuwee> ## does it maintain a "state" or is it primarly used for installation of software?

<13Stuwee> ## wait wait.... just kidding

[21:34:06] <mwjcomputing> ## Can you have Jeff use PowerShell in your next novel?

[21:35:50] <mwjcomputing> ## Have you seen what Adam Driscoll is doing with PowerShell to do the SysInternals Tools?

[21:42:21] <BartekB> ## When can we expect or cli utilitiles from sysinternals to support csv output - perfect for ConvertFrom-Csv in PowerShell to consume and object-izing?

[21:35:42] <Vern_Anderson> ## When can we get a BGInfo that recognizes Windows 2012?

[21:40:37] <Start-Automating> ## Have you learned more about Windows before or after joining Microsoft?

## Will Azure be upgraded to server 2012 at some stage? (not sure if this was dicussed already I had a bad connection here)

[22:02:25] <FreeTheNode> ## how have you seen the development of state sponsored hacking, from israel/usa (stuxnet, duqu, etc) to china and apt1?

[22:03:56] <alexandair> ## has someone contacted you for a movie deal? :)

[22:07:46] <JimBirley> ## Does Mark ever see a future version of Windows server with no GUI option at all making Powershell essential?

[22:17:20] <FreeTheNode> ## do you feel that computing in the cloud will lean more towards the security and encryption of data, perhaps even to the point where it will become encrypted or invisible to the provider, both at rest, and perhaps even for hot data such as the work Microsoft Research is doing via CryptDB?
