Continuing from Monday and Tuesday, today I offer details on another of the sessions I will be presenting while in Napa. Today I will go over some of the details regarding my session on Powershell.


Powershell is everywhere. You hear it mentioned as a solution to just about every problem imaginable. And yet you haven’t taken the time to learn enough about Powershell to get started using it. Leave this session with enough knowledge to get started using Powershell right away.

What this really means:

I am going to show you how to use Powershell to perform your scripting needs. We will go over what tools you can use to create scripts, how to deploy scripts, and go through various scenarios to help you understand when to best use Powershell.

Three things you will learn:

  1. How to perform standard DBA tasks using Powershell
  2. How to manage your enterprise using Powershell
  3. How to use Powershell to create reports

It’s like going to camp. We’ll even tell scary stories around a campfire at night.
