This session walks you through a dozen scripts to simplify and easily automate time-consuming and tedious elements of your day-to-day job. This isn’t stuff you’ll use SOMEDAY, these are scripts you can use when you get home tonight. Harness the power of PowerShell to easily find servers short on space, script out tables and constraints across all of your databases at once and backup databases and restore them to a different environment.
