Invitation and recap from Garry Bargsley.
Have you heard the phrase “Automate All the Things”? That seemed to
be the top buzz phrase of 2018 and means different things to different
Kicking off the T-SQL Tuesday season for 2019, I would like to ask,
what does “Automate All the Things” mean to you? Everyone’s environment
is different, everyone’s day-to-day looks different, everyone is a fan
of different technologies and everyone’s environment is of different
size. While I might want to automate checking of my backup success
across my 500 servers, you might want to automate how new servers are
provisioned. This can be a very broad topic, that could include a broad
range of technologies. You might choose one type of technology to
accomplish a task, where I might choose another.
So technically there are two tasks for this month:
- What do you want to automate or what automation are you proud of completing?
- What is your go-to technology for automation?
- Code Deployments
- VS Code
- T-SQL (honorable mention)
The current invitation (September 2017) is for T-SQL Tuesday #94. Invitation and Get-PostRoundup from Rob Sewell.
What are you going to automate today?
It is no surprise to those that know me that I will choose PowerShell as the topic for this month. I am passionate about PowerShell because it has enabled me to have the career I have today and to visit numerous countries all around the world, meet people and talk about PowerShell. By my reckoning searching the TSQL Tuesday website it has been over 3 years since we had a topic specific to PowerShell. So I would like you to blog about PowerShell and SQL Server (or other interesting data platform products)
If you don’t know or use PowerShell GREAT! That’s awesome.
Please spend an hour or so with it and tell us how you got on and what and how you learned. Just like Erik and Brent did. You could install one of the community modules like dbatools, dbareports , SQLDiagAPI or the Microsoft ones sqlserver or SSRS and try them out and tell us what you learned.
- Write a post on the topic below
- Schedule the post to go live on Tuesday, September 12th (between zero am and midnight, UTC)
- Include the TSQL Tuesday logo in the top of your post
- Link the post back to this one (it’s easier if you comment on this post and link it)
- Optional: Tweet a link to your post using the #tsql2sday hash tag on Twitter
Invitation and recap from Wayne Sheffield.
This month, for the first time, I’m hosting the T-SQL Tuesday Party, and you are all invited. I struggled to come up with a suitable topic (for all of 2 seconds), and decided to tie it in with the blog series on PowerShell that I’m currently blogging on. So I’m asking you to blog about using PowerShell for doing, well, anything as long as it is related to SQL Server or the computer that SQL Server runs on. Scripts are encouraged, but not required. I’ll follow up with a recap of the posts about a week later.
Invitation and Summary from Pat Wright.
Having taken part in several T-SQL Tuesday’s I decided I would finally put my name in to host one. I figured it would be a good way to lose my sanity learn some great ideas from this wonderful SQL community. I figured that since many of you out there set a goal this year to blog more and to learn Powershell then this Topic should help in both of those goals. So the topic I have chosen for this month is Automation! It can be Automation with T-SQL or with Powershell or a mix of both. Give us your best tips/tricks and ideas for making our lives easier through Automation. Now here are all the details you’ll need for a successful T-SQL Tuesday post!
