I am honored to be presenting my first SQL Saturday session in Redmond on the 25th of this month. The session will be a PowerShell basics class, emphasis on helping people who might be starting out with PowerShell, or feel intimidated by PowerShell’s syntax or object-orientation. I have demos and material focused on PowerShell syntax in general, for any task, and then a few demos with a SQL Server slant.
The main idea is to get an understanding of how and why PowerShell syntax works, which should make it easier to understand script samples one might find on the web, or get started and get productive quickly.
If you’d like a preview, or can’t make it to SQL Saturday Redmond, there’s a copy of the presentation and demos available for download on the SQL Saturday site: http://sqlsaturday.com/108/schedule.aspx > “PowerShell 101.”
