Saturdayt October 3rd – SW Florida .NET CodeCamp 2009 – First PowerShell Track…

First, Special THANKS!! to the Naples .NET Community/Organizer John Dunagan, and Microsoft Developer Evangelist Joe Healy for allowing to get all my session approved.


Meet the Florida PowerShell presenters:

Max Trinidad, and Chad Miller.

So, It is possible…  Yesterday, I gave three hour sessions about PowerShell, and co-host the fourth one with Chad Miller.  So, in total, it was a 4 hour PowerShell track.   I had the same people stay for most of the sessions.

I created and presented the following topics:

  • Title: Working with Access in PowerShell V2. (Download All 3 Presentations)
    Description: Check out what you can do with Access and PowerShell. I will give you some samples that might help even in your VBA coding and managing your Access databases. 
  • Title: Using Namespaces and Embedding .NET languages in PowerShell V2.
    Description: This session will show you the ability to extend the PowerShell scripting from its basic use. Using .NET namespaces and embedding C#/VB into your script. It doesn’t matter the level of experience.
  • Title: PowerShell and SQL Server (Part 1 of 2).
    Description: See how you can use SMO and the SQLPS (PowerShell mini-shell) to manage your SQL Servers from your console. This will increase your productivity. Then, make sure to follow the second part by Chad Miller – PowerShell and SQL Server Administration. This is a part 1 & 2 most see sessions.

And, Chad Miller presented

  • Title: PowerShell and SQL Server (Part 2 of 2). (Download Presentation)
    Description: In this session we will look at automating common SQL Server tasks through Powershell. An overview of the CodePlex project SQL Server Powershell Extensions will be provided. Specific topics covered include SSIS administration, replication/agent monitoring, and building security auditing reports.

Also, we had a special visit from Alex Reidel (CTO) from Sapien Technologies, who distributed some Scripting Tools to all attendees:

Thanks Alex for your support.

It was a great opportunity to see how PowerShell audience is on the rise.

VERY IMPORTANT…  During this event, I had a person (Jeff Truman) who want to start a PowerShell User Group in Naples/Fort Myers area.  AWESOME!!!
