Watch the Manual DBA v Automated Deployment Challenge

Steve Jones, 2017-01-12 (first published: 2017-01-05)

At last year’s SQL in the City, I played the part of a manual DBA making changes and deploying those from development to test, staging, and production environments. Actually, I don’t think we went to production because I didn’t have time.

My co-worker, Tom Austin, showcased the automated process using SQL Source Control and other Redgate tools. As much as I believe in using tools, and despite the fact I regularly use them,  even I was impressed by how much less work the automated process took.

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.
