Last week, I was able to attend my first big IT Conference, a dream of mine since I first got into IT almost ten years ago. I got to attend Microsoft Ignite! ##### **IT WAS AWESOME!** In this post, I'll recap some of my experiences attending...and being able to speak there as well! Continue Reading...
In this post, I'll walk you through my GUI design process, and share how that actually worked as I sought to create my newest tool. Along the way, I'll call out a few really confusing bugs that I worked through in creating this tool, and explain what went wrong. In particular, I ran into quite a snag when trying to programmatically create event handlers in code when trying to use `$psitem` or `$_`. This lead to many conversations which introduced me to a powerful solution: the `$this` variable. Continue Reading...

For years now, people have been asking for a DSC GUI tool. Most prominently me, I’ve been asking for it for a longggg time!
My main problem with DSC today is that there is no tooling out there to help me easily click through creating my DSC Configurations, other than a text editor. For a while there, I was hoping that one of the tools like Chef or Puppet would provide the UX I wanted, to click my way through making a DSC Configuration for my machines…but after checking them out, I didn’t find anything to do what I wanted.
So I made my own.
Release Version 1.0
Want to contribute?
I’ve made a lot of PowerShell modules before but none of my projects have ever been as ambitious as this. I welcome help! If you want to rewrite it all in C#, go for it. If you see something silly or slow that I did, fix it. Send me Pull Requests and I’ll merge them. Register issues if you find something doesn’t work.
I want help with this!
Where will we go from here
This project has been a work-in-progress since the MVP Summit last year, when I tried to get MS to make this UI, and they told me to do it on my own! So this is version 1.0. Here’s the planned features for somewhere down the road.
|1.1||Ability to enact the configuration on your machine|
|1.2||Button to jump to local dsc resource folder|
|2.0||Display DSC Configuration as a form|
|2.?||render absent/present as radio button|
|?||render multi-choice as a combobox|
|?||render other options as checkbox|
|?||render string as a textbox|
|?||Display DSC Configuration as a form|
|??||Track configuration Drift?|
