Originally formed in 2012, The DevOps Collective, Inc., is a US 501 C(3) nonprofit dedicated to education and community in the DevOps field. We specialize in technologies built around the PowerShell Language Specification (PLS), covering all platforms and operating systems.

Aside from the Summit and the PowerShell.org website, we offer a public PowerShell/Pester build service for continuous integration pipelines in open-source projects. We offer a number of free ebooks, free webinars, and more. Summit sessions are recorded and offered for free on YouTube, barring any technical or logistical difficulties that inhibit recording a particular session. We also provide assistance to local user groups and enthusiasts who want to hold their own local events, such as a PowerShell Saturday event.


We appreciate all donations – most are tax-free! Read how to donate.

Board of Advisors

Jeff Hicks
Board Member
Jeff's been a collaborator of mine since the VBScript days, and was one of the original PowerShell.org founders.
Paula Kingsley
Board Member
Paula has been with Summit pretty much since the beginning, and recently co-starred as an Iron Scripter judge. She's a long-running PowerShell enthusiast and a real IT expert.
Rob Reynolds
Board Member
Also, a couple of sentences about me: Rob Reynolds is a developer turned founder, building an organization on Chocolatey, a package manager for Windows that makes extensive use of PowerShell. Rob has over 14 years in Windows infrastructure automation and obsesses over user experience.
Mike Nelson

Mike started in IT back when Novell 2.x was a thing, working on Unix and IBM systems. His journey has taken him from the Helpdesk to Architecture, from corporate to independent consulting. He is an active Microsoft MVP, VMware vExpert, and Citrix CTA. His passions are teaching and learning more every day.
