Is PowerShell a Springboard?

I think so.

I've used PowerShell to learn about Automation, SMO, WMI and object-oriented programming for starters.  Also, I've automated compliance reporting and ID administration tasks with it.

On one occasion, I was troubleshooting a connectivity issue involving an app that used C#.
I was able to read the C# code and troubleshoot the issue because PowerShell's syntax is very similar to C#.

If I've piqued your interest, come to my session at SQL Saturday #49 in Orlando on October 16, 2010.

Yesterday's Twitter meme #sqlmovies was a lot of fun.

My entries and the movie they were derived from follow.

I, DBA is a play on the movie I, Robot.
The Hurt Blocker obviously from The Hurt Locker.
@WesBrownSQL's RT The Dead Locker was perfect.
Lost In SAN from Lost In Space.
And finally "what a query wants" from Amanda Byne's movie "what a girl wants"
