I said I’d write, and here I am. I’m on my first leg of my travel to Charlotte, North Carolina which will put me in Atlanta for an hour or so — just enough time to upload this post and eat something. I hope.

Prior to boarding I noticed that the #PSHSummit Twitter hashtag is already seeing an increased amount of usage, as many people begin their travels to the PowerShell Summit North America 2015. I can’t believe it’s already here. I’m on a full Delta flight coming out of Tucson at 6:10 a.m. That required a 4:00 a.m. start time — something I’ll end paying for at some point today.

The plan, after briefly listening to some music, is to fire up module 6 of the Getting Started with DSC JumpStart videos: I’ve got make the most of this time…

… time passes …

…Roughly an hour has past since I started that module. Like all of them so far, that module was beneficial. It helped solidify parameterizing configuration scripts, using configurations data and using credentials. I hadn’t heard of the DevOps reference, mentioned by Jeffrey Snover, before, but I like it. This was the one that indicated to treat your servers like cattle… without an emotional tie. I can do that.

I’m about a half hour outside of Atlanta and our smooth ride is about to get bumpy. Time to pack up, and return to some music to assist in drowning out the engines and squeaky luggage above me…

… time passes …

…Well, I made it to Atlanta despite the rain and bumpy ride. I’ve eaten, caught up on Twitter, and now to find my gate. The long part of my trip is over with a flight about as long as the last module in the first DSC JumpStart from Microsoft Virtual Academy.
