PowerShell for Data Professionals

In this session we will begin exploring the amazing world of the PowerShell language. We will learn to perform several everyday DBA tasks like backing up user databases, scripting table objects and evaluating disk space usage with PowerShell; then we will change these into multi-server scripts by adding only a single line of code.  We will also take a look at some data visualization techniques that require only a small amount of code.  Only a basic understanding of PowerShell or DOS is needed. This session should serve as a good introduction to PowerShell for database users.  The goal is to get data professionals feet wet about PowerShell and ready to practice it when they leave.  Yes you will get a copy of the scripts I use.
