Speaking This Weekend in Iowa City!

, 2018-06-21

Come out to SQL Saturday Iowa at the University of Iowa this Saturday 06/23/2018 for a SQL Saturday that never disappoints - Iowa always puts on a fun event with great atmosphere and informative sessions.

I am giving the premiere of my new presentation "Intro to Powershell for the SQL Server DBA"

--

Many DBA's have the same outlook on Powershell - we all know we should use it, but we don't think we have time to learn one more tool that isn't even really part of SQL Server anyway.  I was one of these DBA's for many years, but recently I have come to respect the *power* of Powershell.

Come learn the basics of Powershell, how Powershell and SQL Server interact with each other, and finally how to use Powershell to automate common SQL Server tasks such as maintenance and SQL Server installations.  If you need to interact with Windows or Active Directory, odds are Powershell is the right tool for the job - come learn how to use it!

There are also many other amazing speakers and sessions this weekend, including Microsoft Data Platform MVP's David Klee (@kleegeek) and Ed Leighton-Dick (@eleightondick).

Hope to see you there!

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
