We have a really cool new class debuting this May in Chicago: Immersion Event on PowerShell for SQL Server DBAs.

It’s a 3-day class, taught by MVP, MCM, and industry expert Ben Miller, and no prior PowerShell experience is necessary. PowerShell is getting more and more popular, and by the end of the class you’ll have learned the following:

  • Installation and configuration of PowerShell
  • Use of the ISE that comes with PowerShell
  • Shared Management Objects (SMO) for SQL Server
  • Programming concepts in PowerShell
  • Modules and scripts to manage SQL Server
  • Gathering data for analysis using PowerShell both with SMO and T-SQL
  • Repositories that contain scripts that you can leverage in your daily work

The modules are as follows:

  • PowerShell Environment
  • Commands, Cmdlets  and Modules
  • Environment Configuration
  • Assemblies in PowerShell
  • PowerShell Fundamentals
  • SQL Server PowerShell
  • PowerShell for the DBA Starter
  • Gathering Information
  • Power Tools
  • Scheduling

We hope to see you there!
