This 1-300-level, 3-day training class was created to teach database management using PowerShell. Developed by Ben Miller, the training is focused around instruction and demos. A hands-on approach is also possible if desired. Most technologists learn things by doing but this technology can be learned by seeing and then practicing with the tools provided that you can take with you. The scripts and tools will be immediately usable when you get back to the office, so bring your learning hat and get ready to PowerShell.
At the completion of this training you will have been exposed to the following:
Prerequisites: No experience with PowerShell is required as we will cover the basics from beginning to becoming proficient in connecting to and managing a SQL Server and its databases. It is helpful (but not required) that students possess some knowledge of and experience with scripting languages or coding in general and T-SQL counts. SQL Server knowledge / experience will be more helpful than experience and knowledge of PowerShell.
Bring Your Own Laptop: You can bring your laptop but it is not required. You will be given a copy of the scripts used as well as all the information discussed in class. If you bring your laptop and want to participate, you should have SQL Server installed on your laptop. It can be any version from SQL Server 2012 to SQL Server 2016, and Express Edition will work for the scripts we will use. Note that there will not be a classroom computer provided for you.
Target audience: Database professionals or Dev Ops professionals that want a way to scale management of database servers and databases.
