MVPs Don Jones and Adam Bertram on Pester
<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?
<stephenowen> hey Vern, try this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubZzkD7dxNk
<andrewtchilds> @jason-helmick, are you watching a recording from earlier? live link is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubZzkD7dxNk
<majst32> Now you need the DSC book too!! https://leanpub.com/the-dsc-book
<donj> And BTW didn't realize @majst32 was here but she's my new co-author on http://leanpub.com/the-dsc-book - grab it!
<knuit> Are pester and InSpec (http://inspec.io/) mutually exclusive?

Jeffrey Snover from Microsoft on open source PowerShell
<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 qÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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??

<juneb> Governance model: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/blob/master/docs/community/governance.md
<beefarino> btw PowerShell going open source is trending on facebook :) https://www.facebook.com/topic/Windows-Powershell/109314949087498?source=whfrt&position=2&trqid=6320345599904818250

<FoxDeploy-Stephe> @whatevergeek https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot/getstarted
<pscookiemonster> I liked this thread in hacker news: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12314653 - nice demonstration of why, even if you *can* use text, you might prefer objects
<ebekker> Linus actually is cool with systemd: https://linux.slashdot.org/story/15/06/30/0058243/interviews-linus-torvalds-answers-your-question
<kilasuit> regarding Aliases there is an open issue here at https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/929
<jcotton> here's the PR @jsnover mentioned https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/pull/1901
<kilasuit> I've suggested this as a resolution https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/929#issuecomment-239697927
<powershellnerd> ARM!!! https://media.giphy.com/media/HJN39I1q6EBKE/giphy.gif
<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> And you can actually write Electron using C#: https://github.com/kexplo/electron-edge
<dougfinke> possible alternate to ogv, don't know if works on the new stuff yet https://github.com/dfinke/PowerShellSlackathon/tree/master/ExportDataTable
<kilasuit> also https://github.com/Pash-Project/Pash/issues/429
<ebekker> Is .ps a TLD? RedHat should get RedHatLoves.ps http://RedHatLoves.ps
<ebekker> First book should be written in the open on https://www.gitbook.com/

<sqlvariant> @jonwalz Can you include in the show notes that SQL Server got 3 new cmdlets, and people can get the new SqlServer module by installing SSMS 16.3 http://sqlps.io/dl

<sqlvariant> Oh, here's a video we did last month if people need to catch up to speed on what's going on with SQL PowerShell in 2016: https://youtu.be/rc6lwiTE9GI
