Featured Presentation 1 - Rob Sewell

Let me show you how easy it is to use PowerShell to accomplish many everyday tasks straight from the command line with the community developed module dbatools.

Afraid of PowerShell?
Worried its too complicated?
Don't want to go through the learning curve?

Let me show you with plenty of demos how easy and straightforward it can be and I will save you time starting Monday

Want to restore an entire servers databases to the latest available point in time of the backups in just one line?
Be useful to know the Last DBCC Check for your entire estate in only one line of code?
Need to test your restores but its complicated?
and many many more
All this in a fast-paced, fun session

Rob is a SQL Server DBA with a passion for Powershell, Azure, Automation, & SQL (PaaS geddit?). He is an MVP & an officer for the PASS PowerShell VG & has spoken at & volunteered at many events. He is a member of the committee that organises SQL Saturday Exeter & also the European PowerShell Conference. He is a proud supporter of the SQL & PowerShell communities.

He relishes sharing & learning & can be found doing both via Twitter & his blog. He spends most of his time looking at a screen & loves to solve problems. He knows that looking at a screen so much is bad for him because his wife tells him so. Thus, you can find him on the cricket field in the summer or flying a drone in the winter.

He has a fabulous beard!
