Today it was another “not code” podcast in my ears. It’s PowerScripting Podcast episode 242, Steven Murawski and Geoff Dalgas on DSC and Stack Overflow.

It’s great to hear how large applications are made. Stack Overflow is the largest website on the Microsoft stack outside Microsoft. It’s the 59th largest on the internet and have around 5 million visitors per day. They generate around 40 GB of web logs every day!

It’s impressive to hear about large sites like this, but the talk also goes into DSC and how they’re using it. DSC, Desired State Configuration Modules, is a way to configure local and remote machines without writing a lot of script code.
