MSPSUG August 2014 Meeting Tonight: Learn PowerShell or Die! for the DBA

Mike F Robbins who is a PowerShell MVP, the co-founder of the Mississippi PowerShell User Group, and winner of the advanced category in the 2013 PowerShell Scripting Games will be presenting a session for our meeting at 8:30pm on August 12th, 2014 (tonight).

Learn PowerShell or Die! That is, learn PowerShell or your career in IT will die. PowerShell is one of those technologies that as a DBA you’ll either love or hate, but believe it or not DBA’s already have the mindset for scripting since you live and work with T-SQL day in and day out. During this session, scripting games winner Mike F Robbins will demonstrate the different methods of retrieving information from your SQL Servers to include a way to simply wrap your existing T-SQL code inside of a PowerShell one-liner, working with SQL Server in PowerShell as if it were a file system, and creating reusable tools via functions in PowerShell that use SMO to retrieve just about any information about your SQL Servers that you could imagine.

The Mississippi PowerShell User Group Meetings are held online (via Microsoft Lync) on the second Tuesday of each month at 8:30pm Central Time and are free to attend. The system requirements to attend these online meetings can be found on the MSPSUG website under the ”Attendee Info” section.
