October 2018 QSSUG – Adopting A DevOps Process for Your Database by Steve Jones

steve jones - qssug speaker

We’ve made some changes to the organiser team, venue and date for the Queensland SQL Server User Group.

Firstly, Microsoft has finished their renovations which means we can move back to our original venue, Microsoft Brisbane, Level 28, 400 George Street, Brisbane.

Secondly, we’ve had to change the date to the first Wednesday of each month. This means the next session will take place on 3rd October.

Thirdly, Michaela Murray will be your new co-organiser. She will be helping to source fantastic speakers for our meet ups. Peter Ward is still our main organiser and will attend the group as often as he can.

Our October speaker will be Steve Jones, founder of SQLServerCentral.com. Steve will be presenting remotely from his home in Denver, USA. More details about the October QSSUG below.

Topic: Adopting A DevOps Process for Your Database by Steve Jones

DevOps is changing today’s software development world by helping us build better software, faster. However most of the knowledge and experience with DevOps is based around application software and ignores the database. We will examine how the concepts and principles of DevOps can be applied to database development by looking at both automated comparison analysis as well as migration script management. Automated building, testing, and deployment of database changes will be shown.
