DevAdmin is how I think of my work. An administrator that uses development (script/code) to get more done with less. A developer that administers system capacity, performance, and scale. It's a mix. And it's a beautiful thing.
SharePoint farms have many servers with various services, applications, traffic patterns, and purposes. Having "grid" scripts like the below sample screen-shots can be a life saver. What's a "grid"? Simple. I wanted to build a real-time Excel spreadsheet to display ALL configuration without RDP. RDP won't scale. While great for 1-2 servers, it is awful for 10+ servers. Having confidence in your configs and knowing everything is 100% consistent are BIG steps forward for most admins.Real application screen-shots:
