I think I understand what you mean. I was thinking of the problems more as those chess puzzles where you see the board in a certain position and it's white's move, figure out checkmate in five moves. It sounds like these situations are much more complicated to set up, not just a set of scripts to set up the schema, then go.
Yeah, exactly - for example, some of them required Windows permissions or networking to be set up in a certain way, and it's beyond what you could do in T-SQL. It'd theoretically be possible to set it up that way with PowerShell, but somebody would have to write the requirements and build those scripts out. It'd be human labor, all done by people who are no longer in the program (and many of which have even left Microsoft outright.)
As much as I'd love to help with it myself, I can't volunteer weeks of time to set that kind of thing up either.
Off topic, I'm super pumped to hear you talk in CHI this weekend Brent!
Ah, cool! See you soon! The Engine one is my favorite deck ever, tons of fun.
