Welcome to PowerShell for DBAs.com

It is a great day. I have wanted to do this for many years.  This site will be a consolidation of content made by me, and there will be other posts that will include videos of HOW TO.  Many other possibilities exist.

I decided to create this site when I went looking for PowerShell scripts and information and found that there is a lot of information coming out, but nothing really specific to DBA tasks.  I saw an opportunity to put content out that is completely related to DBA tasks and operations using PowerShell.

I have fulfilled many roles, in development, DBA, operations, etc. as well as Architecture, and Management.  I started in development, automating reports done while I worked in a prison, so I did not want to hang around until the 4GL language library finished.  So I took a C++ library and used it to produce the reports while I was at home each night.  That really made me jazzed, so I continued to automate many things with code.  So I was a scripter as much as I got the chance to be so.

I was recently awarded SQL Server MVP on January 1st, 2011 for my contributions to the Community. I am honored to be among them, and hope to provide the value that they all provide to the Community.  I post on Experts-Exchange.com as dbaduck and have a blog on SQLBLOG at http://sqlblog.com/blogs/ben_miller

Hold on to your hats, and get revved up and pull out the PowerShell tools enough to have fun doing some DBA tasks and your life will be enhanced and more efficient.
