Wow, there’s so much PowerShell news and goings-on that I barely have time to update the blog. Here is a very terse update of some of what’s going on.
Thank you to all of you who joined Amit Banerjee’s presentation yesterday on “You, SQL Server and PowerShell”. You helped us set the all-time attendance record for a PowerShell VC session and that’s the second time we’ve done that this year! We’ve already uploaded the video to YouTube and you can re-watch it here https://youtu.be/3tC3FCvAnNI
I feel the the session should have been called something more like: “Performance Tweaking Your SQL Server via PowerShell” but that’s just me. In any event, Amit has made the scripts available on GitHub.
There’s been a lot of great news about the future of PowerShell+SQL Server lately. Chrissy and I recently interviewed Ken Van Hyning, Engineering Manager for SQL Server Client Tools at Microsoft. Read more here: http://sqlps.io/future
@cl @SQLvariant Good stuff is on the way folks…help Chrissy and Aaron get me the highest priority improvements. Your vote counts 😉
