Who am I?
I’m Chad Miller a SQL Server DBA and have worked with Microsoft SQL Server since 1999. I’ve been automating administration tasks using Windows Powershell since 2007. In addition to this blog, in my spare time I’m the Project Coordinator/Developer of Powershell-based Codeplex projects SQL Server PowerShell Extensions (SQLPSX), Really Simple Data Dictionary (RSDD) and PoshRSS. I lead the Tampa Powershell User Group and I’m a frequent speaker at SQL Saturdays and Code Camps.
