Alex Yates on Continuous Integration and database delivery

The pace of business accelerates fairly continuously and application development moves right with it. But we’re still trying to deploy databases the same way we did 10 years ago. This session addresses the need for changes in organizational structure, process and technology necessary to arrive at a nimble, fast, automatable and continuous database deployment process. We’ll use actual customer case studies to illustrate both the common methods and the unique context that led to a continuous delivery process that is best described as a pipeline. You will learn how to customize common practices and tool sets to build a database deployment pipeline unique to your environment in order to speed your own database delivery while still protecting your organization’s most valuable asset, it’s data.

Bio:

Alex has worked with database change management tools at Red Gate for four years, collaborating closely with users and dev teams along the way. As a pre-sales engineer, he gets to see a huge variety of server and dev environments, and helps folks solve their database development and delivery problems in whatever way works well for them. Ever the sharer, he also blogs about the lessons he learns: www.workingwithdevs.com

When Alex isn’t tinkering with CI servers or discussing source control branching strategies, he’s either studying for his second degree (Computer Science) or punting through Cambridge with his team.

    Sorry chaps, I've got to take apart the bathroom to find out why water's coming through my kitchen ceiling.. (unless Alex's session includes anything on amateur plumbing?)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
