I keep getting the message that powershell is very usefull for the DBA. I believe it.
But I need a class.
At SQL Pass Summit I went to several presentations that tended to be given
by very talented people who's approach was to present the clever scripts they
wrote and tell what the tricky parts were. Not useful.
So I took a 5 day Microsoft instructor led class where I managed to get some of the
basics (not easy for an old Cobol dude to grasp) but it did not cover anything about
SQL Server. The instructor promised to fire up some SQL plugins and do some stuff
but he never got around to it. Marginally usefull. Not worth 5 days and big bucks. I can do stuff with files and Windows
but nothing with SQL Server (or I could a year ago. I forgot it all).
I need to start at square one in an instructor-led class that is targeted at a SQL Server DBA.
Does such an animal exist (no, I don't want blogs or books) ?
