PowerShell takes the Pole at SQLRally!
PowerShell has taken the Pole for the DBA division at SQLRally! Come see why the organizers have chosen this session to lead the pack to the Green Flag.
We will be covering new ground, not rehashing last year’s PASS Summit presentation. I have developed several new examples for leveraging PowerShell in your everyday DBA role since then. I am promising 6 new scripts for everyone but if I get on a role that number might be closer to 10 when they drop the green flag on this year’s event.
If you’ve never used PowerShell before don’t worry. We will spend a few minutes on a ‘get up to speed lap’ so everyone is going at the same pace when we step on the gas with all this new material. All scripts will be made available for you to download during the session and access later on from pit-row.
After my session here’s what I’ll be checking out:
What sessions I'll be checking out during SQLRally
In case you’re in need of some images to help us promote the largest PASS event on the East Coast this year, I’ve gathered some together for you For all you chapter leaders I’ve also included a flyer that you can print out and hand out at your user group meeting or SQL Saturday. You can right-click save-as on these or just grab this zip with everything.
This one would look great in your email signature!
This one would look great in the tight-hand column of your blog

A few weeks back quite a few people asked me if I was going to be submitting a pre-con session on PowerShell for SQLRally. I hadn’t planned on submitting one but so many people asked me about it that I decided to go ahead and come up with one. My session is a half-day session and has been paired with another PowerShell session by PowerShell MVP Max Trinidad ( blog | twitter ).
You can read about the options here and if you’d like to go the the sessions that Max and I are putting together please vote for them here. Please only cast your vote for which ones you’d be willing to pay up to $199 to attend. Voting is open until 8 AM PST November 2, 2011. The winning sessions will be announced at the 2010 PASS Summit in two weeks.
The details about my session are in the link but in short I plan to take Data Professionals from knowing nothing about PowerShell to being able to use it to simplify their lives in just 4 hours. I will go over a few techniques that I use and then I will be showing a lot of different code examples. If you’ve never worked with PowerShell before I’m sure you’ll be blown away by how little code is needed to build most of these practical everyday examples.
