    Hey Chris – I’ve been meaning to check out Vester since I heard you mention it on a podcast a couple weeks ago; I think it was RunAs Radio. This just gives me that extra motivation to check it out. I had the idea of using PowerShell as a configuration management tool for vSphere but I lacked the time/knowledge/experience to actually put it in place. I’m glad smarter people than me took up the cause!

    I tried joining the Slack channel you mentioned but it looks like it’s only for VMware and EMC employees; it says you need a @vmware.com or @emc.com email to register. Does that sound accurate? I’m a Slack noob so I could be doing it wrong…
