It’s another T-SQL Tuesday, folks! Rob Sewell (b|t) is hosting this month’s challenge. (Thanks for hosting, Rob!) The topic is to talk about PowerShell, or PoSH for those in the know. Check out Rob’s post for details about the challenge and T-SQL Tuesday in general.
I am by no means a PowerShell expert. I first started working with PowerShell a couple of years ago when co-workers introduced it as a way to create “installers” to deploy ETL packages to our clients. My understanding was that it was like the command prompt on steroids. You could execute basic commands like you did in a command prompt, but it had the bonus where you could extend its functionality with your own functions or modules.
