This session will walk you through automating your deployments using PowerShell.

In enterprise application deployments to SharePoint, there are generally farms, or web applications that host specific applications for specific groups, rather than having just an all-in-one deployment. Often times, you do not have access to these other environments, and will need to pass the deployment baton off to the system administrators of those farms.

This session will walk you through how you can deploy your applications, without needing to have the administrator who will be deploying the application, have to do much more than type a few keys into the SharePoint Administration Console and press enter - and having full configuration and deployment of your custom SharePoint applications to other environments.

You will learn:
  • How to utilize automation via PowerShell scripting to deploy SharePoint and applications for SharePoint
  • Maintain a consistent deployment strategy for all applications
  • How this can make for a more stable platform
