- Using PowerShell to Administer SQL Server -

Time: 17:30 - 19:00

Title: Using PowerShell to Administer SQL Server
by: Alhaji Jalloh

Summary: Are you hesitant to use PowerShell and SQL? Are you looking for a quick start on how to test your backups without any headaches? Let PowerShell do everything for you, in an automated fashion, while you focus on learning other new skills, or just sit back and relax. If you’re new to PowerShell, looking for a way to automate repetitive tasks in SQL Server, and ensure consistency, then this session is for you.

In this presentation, we will primarily focus on using PowerShell to do backup and restore tasks. I will demonstrate the different ways we can test our backups and save the output / result in various formats, including text file, Excel, and database table. As the saying goes, you do not have a backup if you cannot restore it.

Target Audience: For absolute beginners or for those who are just getting their feet wet using PowerShell to administer SQL Server databases.

Speaker: Alhaji Jalloh , Systems Engineer Asure Software:
Bio: Alhaji Jalloh is a Systems Engineer at Asure Software and a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP). He is an avid and voracious learner who loves automation. He is extremely passionate about PowerShell and uses it daily at work and for fun. He has a Masters in Computer Information Systems and a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Political Science.
