DevOps Camp Preview: More Topic Proposals

DevOps/DSC Camp isn’t a conference – it’s a “working group” of enthusiastic professionals who share their experiences, practices, challenges, and triumphs. Only 20 people are admitted and we have a high alumni rate – and alumni are asked to prepare a presentation. No, we don’t record or stream – you need to be here live! Register at

We’ve a whole range of topics in our proposal document right now. Here’s a few folks are still working on:

  • Infrastructure From Code Community Project: Jason Helmick wants to take a walk through his AutoLab-based project, which completely automated the creation of complex lab environments. He pitched a “beta” version at Camp 2016, and has since totally rewritten it.
  • Modules and Nuget: Mitchell Kruzel wants to take us through the process of building a private Nuget repo, code against a Git repo, and using a build workflow to test, publish, and version modules. I kinda can’t wait to see this. 
  • Infrastructure from Code: Mitchell is also proposing a demo of using Git with TFS to deploy a VM to VMM and then configure it via DSC. I’m a little torn – it’s probably unfair to ask him to do two presentations, and I want to see the Nuget one, but this one has all the acronyms.
