SharePoint 2010: How To Enable the Developer Console

This is a powershell script that will enable the developer console on a sharepoint farm:
$consoleSettings =[Microsoft.Sharepoint.Administration.SPWebService]::ContentService.DeveloperDashboardSettings
$consoleSettings.DisplayLevel = "OnDemand"
$consoleSettings.RequiredPermissions = "EmptyMask"
$consoleSettings.TraceEnabled = $true
$consoleSettings.Update()
Short but sweet, now once you visit your SharePoint site you will see a diagnostics icon next to your username on the top bar.

In case you receive errors saying that PowerShell could not find the type Microsoft.Sharepoint.Administration.SPWebService, load the SharePoint dll using following command:
[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint")
