SQL Server and PowerShell: Let's Get Serious - Drew Furgiuel

  • In-Person @ The Motley Fool - 2000 Duke Street Alexandria, Virginia, United States (map)
  • 18:30 - 21:00 Eastern Daylight Time
  • Language: English

Whether you’ve dabbled in PowerShell or wondered what all the fuss is about, make no mistake: PowerShell isn’t going away and it is definitely something worth learning to make your life as a SQL Server professional easier. In this session, you’ll see practical, real-world examples of how you can blend SQL Server and PowerShell together. You’ll also get a look at the SQL Server PowerShell provider and how you can incorporate it into your automation scripts. Instead of focusing on syntax, the session will plunge straight into examples and highlight various snippets of code and how they work. You can expect to see code examples on how PowerShell can do anything from comparing tables across servers, automating and centralizing your backups, and even doing in-depth security audits. This session is aimed at DBAs with or without a development background who keep hearing people screaming about PowerShell, but aren’t sure what all the fuss is about. The ideal audience are people who have some (but none is okay as well) experience with PowerShell, and everyone who wants to see what’s possible when you combine SQL Server and PowerShell together to not only make their administration life easier, but infinitely more powerful. We won't focus on syntax but instead on method and examples, allowing people to come up with their own ideas and get excited to learn the language on their own.

About Drew:
I am a senior DBA that is passionate about SQL Server, PowerShell, automation, source control, and release management, and mixing them all together in a funky blender. I've been in the game since SQL Server 2000, and I haven't stopped wanting to learn more and share my experiences since.
