MidnightSQLLogo-TransWe are excited to invite you to the next meeting of the Oklahoma City SQL Server Users Group and we’re trying something a little different this month! We will be doing a lunch meeting from 11:00am-1:00pm and the regular evening meeting.

The title for the Lunch talk is Small Question/Big Answers and will cover:
The longest days in a DBA’s life start with small questions.
Who has sysadmin in all of our databases? How big will our databases be next year?
Which servers will be affected if we change the AD account password?
If you’re a DBA in this shop and you have hundreds of databases, then your entire week just got really long. What you need is a way to organize your environment in such a way that you can get the answers easily and turn these into trivial questions. We’re going to show you how our new product Minion Enterprise lets you manage your environment in a way so that you get all of your time back. While Minion Enterprise can work wonders in your environment, we’re also going to discuss other ways to bring your shop under control.

Introduction To Powershell Cmdlets For DBAs 

You’ve been hearing about this newfangled craze, and it’s time to learn exactly why it’s called POWERshell. You’ll want to take notes, or better yet, bring your laptop and start using Powershell immediately. We will get Posh running and then I’ll introduce you to the basic concepts, with examples to make things happen right away. We’ll work on SQL Server with Powershell, and learn some cool techniques. Come see this all-demo, hands-on session!


Monster Text Manipulation: Regular Expressions for the DBA

As DBAs there are many tasks we’re asked to do every day that we just accept as taking a long time because of some manual component we can’t get around.  Many of these tasks can be brought into line with regex.  You can use it to format your own T-SQL and create code that writes code with relative ease.  I’m going to teach you the basics of regex and show you how to perform many tasks that’ll make your life much easier like deploying code, formatting T-SQL, and much more.
