Back to the Future
Windows 1 came out in 1985 so back in those days we did a command line stuff to get work done. Now we have PowerShell 3 and this is also the future as you can also automate your azure with this stuff. Although I don’t blog about SQL too much I do use it a lot I use for updates to manage my clouds and make my VDI deployments highly available.
