Jason Helmick and I have been prodded and poked for a while now about producing a “real” book on PowerShell’s Desired State Configuration. Thing is, books don’t always pay off the massive investment they take to produce. So we’re going to see if there’s actual demand for this thing – and if there is, we’ll write it. We’ve started an IndieGoGo campaign to raise the funds we’ll need, and it’ll be up to you to make it happen. You’ve got 60 days – that’s roughly until the start of January, 2016.
If we meet our campaign goal, we’ll begin writing when Windows Server 2016 (containing the “final” DSCv5 release) goes General Availability or Release to Manufacturing (GA/RTM). We expect a 3-6 month effort. We’ll touch on absolutely every aspect we can of DSC, including tons of tested code examples.
It’s important to note that this is not a PowerShell.org project – this is me and Jason, personally
