New Training: Perform Automated Infrastructure Testing using Pester and PowerShell

Hello everyone! One of my latest video training skills is live over at CBT Nuggets (blog announcement). If you’d like to learn about how to use PowerShell Core Edition and the Pester testing framework to automate infrastructure monitoring, then you’ll be sure to enjoy this skill.

If you’re logged into CBT Nuggets, you can use this direct link to find the training.

Using Pester for infrastructure testing gives you quick insight into what’s performing well, and what services could be failing. By integrating Pester with cloud vendors, you can ensure that resource costs don’t get out of control, and ensure that your security configurations are enforced!

You’ll learn how to perform ping tests, web endpoint tests, and even integrate with cloud services like Amazon Web Services (AWS). Additionally, you’ll learn how to perform setup and teardown tasks before executing tests, and execute a subset of tests based on the associated tag whitelist or blacklist.
