SMMUG: SD-WAN, Software Defined Networking (SDN), and the Microsoft Cloud: it’s definitely a new frontier in IT.

The disruptions caused by the transformation to digital business models are driving adoption of SD-WAN at a pace that is unheard of in wide-area networking.” —Gartner SD-WAN, Software Defined Networking (SDN), and the Microsoft Cloud: it’s definitely a new frontier in IT. And with the pending release of Azure Stack from Cisco (as well as from other vendors) it quickly becomes a confusing landscape. The ability to combine your on-premise environment and public or private cloud environments without complex VPN mesh infrastructures is the ultimate goal. While SDN is not magic (ok well maybe it’s a little magical), it can be complex to implement. Join as we explore the emerging world of Software Defined Networking and hear from experts about how you can bridge the gap between your network and the Microsoft Cloud. We’ll also cover the latest advancements in SD-WAN technologies, as well as frameworks for building more scalable, reliable, and cloud-ready environments. Presenters: David Barter, Practice Director, Microsoft Technologies & End User Computing, GreenPages Nick Phelps , CEO, Moonrock Consulting & Industry Evangelist John Rekemeyer, Principal Networking Engineer, Citrix Glenn Chrumka, NetScaler Account Manager, Citrix

SMMUG: How to Use Pester to Test Your PowerShell Code

PowerShell is a wonderful and easy to learn development framework for technical professionals. And now that it has been ported across Windows, Linux, and MacOS platforms, the sky’s the limit! But, like with any other programming language, there’s always going to be bugs, errors, and broken dependencies introduced into your scripts, functions, and modules as new code is written. Fortunately, PowerShell has an snazzy module named Pester that can be harnessed for testing and mocking your code! In this session, join Chris Wahl of Rubrik as he covers an introduction to unit testing, the Pester module, and live code samples using an open source project named Vester. You’ll learn about building test blocks, how to mock specific cmdlets and functions, and some common practices for healthy code coverage.
