CACTUSS Central Monday 10/15 and North Tuesday 10/16 - PowerShell and SQL Server

John Rutherford will be presenting this month on 

PowerShell and SQL Server

PowerShell is a powerful tool that Microsoft is committed to integrating into all of it's server products and SQL Server is no exception. This presentation will not spend too much time on basic PowerShell commands but rather show you how you can use it to help administer and maintain multiple SQL Servers. I will show you some demos of how you can start using PowerShell to talk to your existing SQL servers. You do not need any previous PowerShell experience to understand the concepts and demos in this presentation.

John Rutherford is an IT Manager/Database Administrator for a mid-sized Orthopedics company and currently maintains 75 MS SQL Servers . He has been working with Database Systems since he started in IT over 14 years ago and has been working with MS SQL Server for the past 3 years. He has been working with various programming/scripting languages his entire career but has only this year discovered PowerShell and started to use it in conjunction with SQL Server.
