SLW 15: DSC with Gael Colas

Gael Colas is an independent consultant and vital member of the DSC Community (https://dsccommunity.org), an association who actively contributes to the development of the name-giving Configuration Management framework.

Desired State Configuration (DSC) was introduced with PowerShell 4 as an addition to the Windows PowerShell and has undergone some significant changes ever since. I invited Gael to chat about the roots, the principles and the future of DSC – not only for the Windows platform.

The interview was recorded on July 15, 2020 in Kuala Lumpur and Duisburg.
