TechEd North America Session Videos

In shameless self promotion the video of the talk I did on PowerShell and SQL Server has been posted to the web. I haven't watched this as I just can't bring myself to sit and watch myself for an hour but the session evaluations were pretty good. Therefore I think the odds are pretty good you'll get something out of this session, especially if you're new to PowerShell. A bunch of other talks have also been posted. Here's the landing page for the videos.

    As a "PowerShell" MVP, I love your Advanced PowerShell session covering the SQL specifics.

    Thanks for doing this and posting it after!

  2. Thanks Marco. And congratulations on your MVP status for PowerShell! Nice work!

    You know, I think I’m going to start a project on to create a snap-in for PowerShell cmdlets specific to SQL Server (using SMO).

    I’d love to get your feedback.  Your TechEd talk mentioned something like new-database/new-table, and start-backup.  Those are good ones to start with…

    Feel free to email me directly: anytime.  I’d actually like to talk to the SQL MVPs about this also, if I can find a contact.

  4. Create Table and Backup Database are two great ones given the way they’re modeled in SMO. Start Job (SQL Server Agent) might be another one that’s interesting. The start-job could also take a parameter for which step to start at – similar to the way the GUI works. rebuild-index could also be interesting. A cmdlet for DBMail (send mail) would also be cool.
