What We Do

What We Do

We’re continually trying new things, to see what helps the DevOps community – and especially the Ops side – further their goals, their careers, and their knowledge. Some of our major projects include:

PowerShell.orga community focused on technologies built around the open PowerShell Language Specification, including Windows PowerShell, Desired State Configuration, WS-Management, and more. These technologies form an important basis for DevOps-style approaches on many platforms, including the Microsoft Windows operating system. PowerShell.org offers webinars, a public Continuous Integration build service, code repositories, Q&A forums, and much more.
PowerShell + DevOps Global Summit, an in-person seminar focusing on concrete DevOps practices implemented primarily in PowerShell Language Specification-related technologies. This is where you learn to put DevOps practices into real-world use on a broad set of platforms.
DevOpsCollective.org, this site, where we focus on DevOps from the business-level, practitioner perspective. We propose best practices and encourage conversation and debate, influencing the state of the industry.
Free eBooks provide both business-level education as well as concrete technology implementations.
