Presenting at SQL Saturday #32 in Tampa

Tomorrow I am presenting to a non-captive audience at SQL Saturday #32 in Tampa.  I’ve done presentations on the wonderfulness of SQL Server before but this will be the first time where the people have 6 other great options to learn about SQL Server.  I’m not used to competing for audience! My talk isn’t directly about SQL Server. Instead I’m focusing on PowerShell and it’s ability interrogate your SQL Server(s). Very cool stuff if you’re a data nerd.  At any rate I hope you stop by, heckle me say hello and stick around to learn some of my favorite PowerShell tricks.

Here’s a look at what I’m covering:

PowerShell for Data Professionals

In this session we will learn to perform several everyday data tasks including user database backups, scripting table objects and evaluating disk space usage with PowerShell. For each task we will explore the benefits of using PowerShell over the standard method. Only a basic understanding of PowerShell or DOS is needed. This session should serve as a good introduction to PowerShell for database users. The goal is to help everyone get their feet wet using PowerShell.

 The event has a lot of great sessions so I hope that you can make it out.  Please checkout the full schedule while I get back to working on the last of my demo scripts:
