Speaking at SQL Saturday 61 in Washington DC

The organizers of SQL Saturday #61 in DC (actually Reston, VA) created an Advanced DBA/Dev track for their event, which I think is cool. Both of the presentations I'll be doing there on Saturday are in that track. (In fact, they're the first two sessions of the day.)

The first, Automate Policy-Based Management using PowerShell will walk through the basics of Policy-Based Management, and then show you how to build PowerShell scripts to create and evaluate your policies.

The second, Gather SQL Server Performance Data with PowerShell will go explain the basics of performance metrics, define a set of counters which make up a baseline, walk you through the PowerShell script which gathers those counters, and then I'll show you how to create a report to report on the performance, and show you how to view that report from within Management Studio.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Hi Allen,

Any chance I could get a copy of slide deck and scripts from your presentations?
