PowerShell for DBAs workshop

Ever wanted to get a little more hands on with PowerShell for DBAs? Now is your chance.  I will take you through set up and configuration, then we will go over a little syntax essentials, and it is off to the races. Getting your environment set up is most of the battle and then it is commands. This workshop is meant to be hands on, so plan on bringing your laptop and preferably also having SQL Server installed on it.  We will be using PowerShell 5.1 so if you don’t have Windows 10, then you will want to download WinRM 5.1 and install it on your laptop.  We will configure a profile for you and load the essentials and then you will finish up by seeing/using the PowerShell Provider for PowerShell as well as some DBAtools stuff and finally some SMO essentials.  Join me in the quest to become a PowerShell DBA.


It is not necessary to have experience in PowerShell to attend this session.
