SQL Source Control Webinar

SQL_68x68_SrcCon One of the new products that Red Gate Software has released recently is SQL Source Control. I saw a demo of this product back in March as it was nearing completion, and I thought it was pretty cool. I have struggled with source control for years, and build a process that was mainly manual, and one that I’ve seen others use over the years.  It worked well, but it was prone to errors unless I was allowed to chastise developers on a regular basis for not adhering to the process.

friends_of_rg_logo Today I acted as emcee and moderator for a semi-private webinar that demo’d the product to the Friends of Red Gate, a group that is by invitation only, but lets some customers interact with Red Gate similar to how the MVP program grants some people access to Microsoft.

This was the first time I actually acted as a moderator, having been an attendee or presenter in the past. It went well, I think, though I definitely had a little dead air and struggled to keep up with questions and find a smooth way to interrupt the presenter. I would rather be the one presenting and let someone else handle the other work for sure.

I think we’ll be scheduling more of these on a regular basis for some Red Gate products to get the word out more and show how they can be used to solve problems. This is one of the few that I’d purchase myself if I was doing DBA work, so we’ll start here and see what happens.

I’m also hoping to do some other more regular webinars from SQLServerCentral, on more technical topics, across the next year.

I'm very interested to see a bit more about redgate source control as well.  I tried to play with it a bit being a member of the early access team or what not, but I haven't gotten a chance to really see how it works yet; as when I used it, subversion was the only thing it tied to and I have no idea how to use subversion.

To clarify the above, SQL Source Control now ties to TFS as well as subversion; I was demo'ing the beta (or maybe alpha?  can't remember) versions that only tied to subversion several months ago.
