    This is fully explained / documented on MS website and in videos on MS channel9 or even YouTube vids as well as all over the web on many sites. Give those a spin, try some things and get back to us.

    Desired State Configuration (DSC) is a feature in PowerShell 4.0 and Windows Server 2012 R2 that helps Windows administrators manage and deploy software services' configuration data and the environment the services run in. DSC provides a set of PowerShell language extensions, cmdlets and a process called declarative scripting.

    You can also consider "The DSC Book," but in terms of understanding what it is, Docs.Microsoft.com is pretty thorough.
