Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Adam Bertram. Welcome to my course, PowerShell Devops Playbook. I am a Microsoft MVP and founder of the technology community TechSnips. Did you know that PowerShell is integrated into hundreds of DevOps tools? It's true. You can write PowerShell code to be run in all kinds of software deployment and infrastructure provisioning tooling. PowerShell is also so flexible sometimes you don't even need a third-party tool at all. Just build it in PowerShell. This course is a playbook course, meaning we're going to cover unique scenarios in each module all built around a single theme using PowerShell in a DevOps world. Some of the major topics that we will cover include running PowerShell in Ansible, deploying Azure resources, automating deployment of PowerShell modules from GitHub, building a complete CI/CD pipeline with AppVeyor, building test infrastructure in Azure with Azure DevTest Labs, and wrapping things up by building CI/CD pipeline monitoring dashboards with PowerShell. By the end of this course, you will have learned a few ways to leverage your PowerShell skills in the DevOps arena. I hope you'll join me on this journey to PowerShell DeOps automation domination with this PowerShell Devops Playbook course, at Pluralsight.
