Tonight I presented a hands on introduction to PowerShell for the great folks at the FlaDotNet user group. I skipped the slides and dove into PowerShell from the console and the PowerShell ISE.
PowerShell scripts and referenced resources are available.
UPDATE: Dave Lord documented the event with photos! Thanks Dave!
This year I’m volunteering at SQL PASS Summit 2013 as an MCT Volunteer, to assist those interested in certifying for SQL Server 2012. Being an MCT means keeping up with certifications, which means keeping up with tests, and since 2002 I’ve certified on SQL 2000,2005 and 2008.
This May I achieved my MCSE: Data Platform this year, and working toward MCSE: Business Intelligence certification as well, with just one more test to go!
If you’re nervous about taking a Microsoft exam, just know you can do it, like thousands of other have. If you want help preparing to take a SQL Server exam, can you imagine a better place than the PASS Summit with thousands of smart SQL people there to help? Check out the PASS info page on MCP certification resources, like study hall, exam prep sessions, practice exercises, and more.
I’m looking forward to meeting SQL people and absorbing the knowledge. Also interested in exploring Charlotte and investigating the craft beer scene 🙂 Any one heading out there? I’ll buy the first round.
