I'm giving a presentation at SQLSaturday
in South Florida on August 8th 2009. If you haven't been to a SQLSaturday, they're free one-day events put on by local SQLPASS
chapters. As an added bonus there will be two PowerShell sessions:
PowerShell MVP and prolific presentor, Max Trindad
will be presenting "PowerShell and SQL Server
: Learn how DBA's and Developers can take advantage of this new .NET scripting technology - PowerShell 2.0. This is a "most" to learn IT/.NET skill. In this session will discuss the difference between using SMO and the new integrated SQLPS in assisting managing your SQL Server 2000/2005/2008."
I will present a session on "PowerShell and SQL Server Administration: In this sesssion we will look at automating common DBA tasks through Powershell. An overview of the CodePlex project SQL Serer Powershell Extensions will be provided. Specific topics covered include SSIS administration, replication and agent monitoring, performing simple ETL with Powershell and building graphs, charts and diagrams using Powershell."
If you can attend both sessions we're planning a part 1 and part 2 format. This should be another great community event with plenty of PowerShell content and there's still time to register.
