Catching up and Powershell

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

This morning I was catching up on some blog reading and I saw this great paragraph from Brent Ozar (blog | twitter) about powershell.

“There’s a huge demand for good PowerShell basic training. The majority of sysadmins and DBAs that I spoke with still aren’t using PowerShell. They’re vaguely interested in it, but they’re not getting the education they need. Don Jones and Jeffry Snover ran an incredibly well-attended PowerShell crash course session with almost 1,500 attendees and got very, very positive feedback. Thanks to Microsoft, you can watch the PowerShell session recording now. (You may have to turn the audio *way* up in the video, and on your computer.)”

I think this is fantastic that so many people are finally getting interested in Powershell. I am currently working on a basic PowerShell for the DBA class at and I will let you know when it is out and I will be providing some free classes as well as a discount when it comes out. I have been preaching this for years now and I have been doing PowerShell sessions at SQL Saturday events and they are always popular. I hope that you can all learn something from my course once I put the finishing touches on it. If you are interested in taking a class like this please let my know so I can enter your name into a drawing for a free class. I will be giving away 10 and I will be doing the selection with a powershell script. I will show off the powershell script that I use in the course so you can see it and use it for yourself.

Leave a comment here with your name and email so I can enter you in the drawing.
