Well I have done it now. After a Debate with a few people on twitter talking about whether or not Powershell is worth the time to learn I decided I would do a session about it. Why a DBA needs to know Powershell. It will be a basic 100 level session about what powershell is, how to install and configure it, and how to use it in general. Then I will dive into some of the reasons that it is useful for a DBA to know. I will have plenty of demo’s and example code that you will be able to use as well. I think Powershell is a vital tool for anyone doing Administration in a Windows world, and it is time to show why I believe that to be so. So please sign up for SQL Saturday 47 in Phoenix, and if I get picked, come check it out.
Now I have to go start putting a 65 minute presentation together. Wish me luck on that.
