The Stairway to Deployment

, 2013-07-17

logoNext week I travel to Sacramento, CA for the SQL in the City Seminar – Stairway to Deployment on Friday, July 26, 2013. It’s a half day event where Grant Fritchey and I will look to lead you through the idea of implementing continuous integration and continuous deployment for databases (as well as other code).

I have the first two talks to get you started: Team-based Version Control and Automated Build and Test. Grant will cover the Best Practices for Database Deployment and we’ll finish with a Q&A and a happy hour on us.

We still have space, so register today if you can make it. The event is being held at the Courtyard Marriott Sacramento Midtown in The Orchid Room (4422 Y St, Sacramento, CA 95817) from 12:30-6:00pm.

We will use some of the Red Gate tools to show you how to accomplish the tasks, but you don’t need them. The tools make the process easier, and that’s the job of our development and software tools, but really the important things to understand are the idea of automating your processes, integrating testing, and having a workflow that is constantly used, but doesn’t slow down your development process.

Hope to see some of you there.

Register today.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
