Improving Database Restores with PowerShell
Presented by Michael Fal
Database restores are a key function of any database administrator's job. However, it can be an extremely time-consuming task to sort through your backups, find the correct files, and then get your database up and running. In an emergency this will have a disastrous effect on your recovery time objective (RTO) and lead to the dreaded angry-CTO-in-your-cube effect. By leveraging some easy-to-use PowerShell scripts, you can avoid the second disaster and the pain that comes with it. Attend this session to discover how you can use the PowerShell automation framework for database restores, see scripts that will let you restore faster, and learn techniques to extend these tools for migrating data and testing backups.
Championing PowerShell: Create Experts at Your Company
Presented by Darwin Sanoy
A champion is someone who is looked up to as a top talent in their field, and an advocate is someone who is passionate enough about the interests of others to act on their behalf. An advocate doesn't need to be the end-all and be-all PowerShell expert in the company. The focus of this role is to bring people together and encourage them to invest their PowerShell skills for the benefit of their colleagues, their company, and their careers. Championing PowerShell is a great way to contribute and grow. All you need is some ideas and a little initiative. This session explains the criticality and necessity of informal learning, as well as the fact that it doesn't have to be a lonely task. Darwin then discusses how you can champion PowerShell, including many practical activities you can offer to help your colleagues in their PowerShell journey. If you're not careful, championing PowerShell might just transform you into a "PowerShell champion."
