In this session, we will be discussing Pester, how it is setup, how it can be used, and also show live examples of Pester in practice. Pester is a very unique tool because it is geared towards testing PowerShell scripts and verifying outputs. When you use Pester, it can help everyone write better and more efficient code. It will change your philosophy on how to write functions and how you can make sure they don’t break in the future. We can also make sure that bugs that have popped up in the past can be avoided in the future. We will also be discussing how Pester can be used to test your infrastructure.
