Look inside

As the IT Developer for Rocinante, a company seeking to consolidate its dispersed IT scripts and tools, your mission is to unify them into a cohesive GitHub platform that's accessible with a PowerShell module. Your task in this liveProject is to ensure the module’s quality. You’ll add automated tests to ensure your module works properly and implement static code analysis to ensure your code is issue-free. Finally, you’ll incorporate both testing and code analysis into a CI/CD pipeline to ensure every build is of high quality.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
