We are looking to use Chef to help configure our large Windows Development environment. I have been using Chef for several years now so fully understand its benefits. As DSC is now emerging as a system to configure Windows machines I have been looking at the integration between the two.
I have seen the video given (link from http://www.opscode.com/blog/2013/08/19/opscode-chef-delivers-robust-open-source-automation-platform-for-windows-environments/) about how Chef and DSC can be used together. I note that the was a Provider that was shown called ‘dsc_configuration_script’ and I was wondering when this would be available in Chef to use.
I appreciate that someone asked this same question back in September (http://lists.opscode.com/sympa/arc/chef/2013-09/msg00247.html).
There is another slide show that states that Chef and DSC integration should be coming late 2013, on slide 4 - http://www.slideshare.net/opscode/opscode-webinar-cooking-with-chef-on-microsoft-windows but no specific date.
We would really like to integrate the two systems, and preferably using the system that Opscode comes up with rather than rolling our own. Is it possible to have a look at what you are doing and / or help to develop / debug it?
Thank you very much.
