Powershell, SQL Saturday, SQL Saturday #47
Tomorrow is the big day and I am very excited. I am a bit nervous but after giving my presentation to my coworkers I feel much better. I mean I really care what they think because I have to work with them everyday and it is important that they respect me and think some what highly of me. As for the attendees of the event, I still want them to like me and I hope that everyone gets something out of my presentation. I also hope that someone will actually show up to mine. I really hope that knowing I have some shirts, stickers, and some software to give away will bribe some to attend and stay until it is complete.
I have had my presentation “done” for a while now but I keep going back and making small tweaks and new notes to make sure that I hit all the points that I want to talk about. Now, even though I am doing a basic session about powershell I will only be spending about half of the session on the basics and then I will be diving into some scripts that help me out everyday. These are a bit more advanced but I really want to showcase how powershell can be a good tool in your DBA Toolbelt. So hopefully I will show you enough of the basics so you will be able to follow the scripts and I hope that the scripts are cool enough that they will make you want to dive in and do even more with powershell.
