Powershell Jumpstart for SQL Server DBAs

Mike Fal, Database Administrator

Powershell can be hard. As a language, it is fairly complex and provides a large array of functionality. Fortunately, you can teach yourself how to use Powershell with tools that are built right into the language. This session will cover some Powershell fundamentals, how you can use Powershell itself to learn about concepts and syntax, and techniques for using Powershell with SQL Server. We will focus on core language patterns that you can use immediately, taking the mystery out of the code and helping you start writing your own Powershell scripts. The key to learning Powershell is using it and this session will give you a launchpad to start building your own tools.

About Mike:
Who am I? I’m a SQL Server Database Administrator with 10+ years of experience. I am currently employed as a SQL Server database administrator within the healthcare industry. Over my career I’ve worked in several different industries, mostly on SQL Server, but I’ve also done some work with Oracle, Netezza, and MySQL. What do I do? Well, like I said, I’m primarily a SQL Server DBA and focus most of my time and energy on that. It’s mostly just an outgrowth of being a tech geek and finding that playing with databases is a ton of fun. I’ve worked on failover clustering, performance tuning, and security auditing, along with the typical gamut of database development. Of course, this is just some of the recent developments. The one thing I love about this job is there’s always something to learn and more stuff to figure out. Is that it? Well, no, not really. Outside of work, I love skiing, biking, hiking, and general outdoors stuff. I also play bass trombone locally and am a member of a community big band. I also read. I LOVE reading.
