Speaking in Chicago this weekend at SQL Saturday #31

I’ll be speaking at SQL Saturday #31 in Chicago this weekend. I’m presenting a PowerShell for Data Professionals session.  This is based off a previous session but does include some new content.  If you’ve seen the session before, there will be something new and the demos will hopefully transition a little smoother.  I’m working with PowerShell automation every day at work and am still discovering new tricks and finding new targets for automation.

Here are some details on the session:

The first time that I saw PowerShell I hated it.  I thought it was complicated and stupid.  After trying a couple of scripts I gave up on PowerShell.  Then Windows 7 (and it’s nice script editor) was released and a light went on.  My session takes you through Power Shell basics and then I put it in action automating tasks DBAs do daily and showing you how to check servers for some common worst practices.

There are a lot of excellent speakers at this SQL Saturday. I hope to see you there.
