Documenting DSC Part 2

In a previous post, we introduced the team of writers working on documenting DSC. (You can always contact them at DSCIX@microsoft.com.) We’ve started out by bringing the existing documentation up to date (the topics for all of the built-in resources have been brought current, for example) and transferring all or parts of most of the posts in this blog concerning DSC into the Technical Library.

For your reference, here’s a table that relates the DSC blog posts to the corresponding Technical Library articles:
