Announcing a new PowerShell for DBAs online course with Brent Ozar Unlimited

I’m extremely proud to announce that I’ll be presenting a two-day live training class on “PowerShell for Database Administrators”  as part of Brent Ozar Unlimited’s Live Training Class series. This has been something I’ve been working on for a while now, and I’m thrilled that things worked out and that I get this amazing opportunity to deliver some quality content with Brent. He’s committed to delivering some really great online training with experts around a lot of different disciplines, and frankly, I’m not sure how wound up in such rarefied air. The class will be held on January 18th and 19th of 2018.

That aside this is going to be a lot of fun not just for me, but for anyone who signs up too! We have two packed days of PowerShell training focused on getting started with the technology to using it to solve all kinds of problems or automate away some daily tasks. In addition to instructor-led training, you also get a private Amazon AWS VM to play in and follow along in class. Here’s a quick highlight of some of the topics we’ll be going over:

  • Writing your first script
  • Parameters and functions
  • An overview of the SQL Server PowerShell Module
  • And much, much more!

More details can be found on the class description page (click on “Modules and Agenda” to see them). If you or someone you know thinks this sounds like a course they’d benefit from, registration opens on Wednesday, November 1st. Not only that, but the class (and all the other classes Brent is offering) have limited seats available for 50% off for a limited time! Seats are pretty limited though, so get in there early.

The class will be held on January 18th and 19th of 2018, and this is a big step for me both professionally and personally, and I’d love for you to be a part of it. Drop me a line if you have any questions. If you can’t make this one, well, hopefully everything goes well enough that I’ll be asked to do another one. Hope to see you in January!

    I am very much interested in taking this class because I have till date never found a single PowerShell training that actually teaches you to specifically work with SQL Server and more over script for making the SQL Server administration tasks easier.

    I do have a question, I would love to take this class and would want to translate the learning into practical application. Would we be able to ask you some questions, later on while building scripts, just like how people ask in forums? I am not asking for any hand holding but yes I would really hope that I can further clear up any concepts taught in class when implementing them in practicality.

      Hey Amir, sorry it took me so long to reply. I was traveling back from PASS Summit. In regards to your question, yes, absolutely you’ll have full access to me for anything you need. During the class, we’ll have a private Slack channel set up, plus afterwards if you have any specific questions about problems you’re trying to solve, I’d love the chance to help you.
