Powershell – old tricks for a new dog?

SQL Server 2008 introduced Powershell into the database with a new mini-shell for SQL Server.... so what?

If you are like me, you’ve gathered along your career path a host of techniques, methods and scripts that have provided a trusty and faithful toolbelt for solving problems and carrying out everyday tasks. So when SQL Server 2008 included this feature it probably wasn’t your top priority to learn and find out about, in fact it might not have even made the list!!

This presentation will give show how useful Powershell can be for DBAs and developers and show how easy it can be to use. Maybe it’s time to update those old tricks??

    Martin Bell has aged considerably since starting to organise the SQLBits conferences; but is still a dashing and attractive redhead. He's worked on many relational database management systems and since the 1998 has specialized in SQL Server. He was first awarded Microsoft MVP (SQL Server) status in June 2003 proving he is not just a pretty face! As an insight into his masochistic tendancies he currently organises the Scottish Area and Leeds Area SQL Server User Group meetings. He is also a founding organiser of the highly successful SQLBits Community Conferences conclusive proof that he is slightly mad!!
