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?
