DevOps Event

University of South Wales, Cardiff Campus

AGENDA 18.00 - 18:30 Meet & Greet 18:30 - 19:20 DevOps 101 for Data Folks DevOps has fundamentally changed the way we manage IT. Those practicing DevOps well aren't just outpacing their competitors, they are annihilating them. DevOps brings a whole host of new practices, tools and buzzwords. It has made some roles and tasks redundant, while new opportunities have been created. We all need to learn to survive in this new reality. In this session we'll cut through the hype and look at the key concepts and findings from the Puppet State of DevOps Reports, The DevOps Handbook and Microsoft's work in this space. We will finish with an overview of an Azure DevOps Services project that automatically tests and deploys the code from a SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) project in a public GitHub repo. Alex Yates has been helping organisations to apply DevOps principles to relational database development and deployment since 2010. He’s most proud of helping Skyscanner develop the ability to deploy 95 times a day. Originally for Redgate, later for DLM Consultants, Alex has worked with clients on every continent except Antarctica – so he’s keen to meet anyone who researches penguins. A keen community member, he co-organises Data Relay, is the founder of www.SpeakingMentors.com and has been recognised as a Microsoft Data Platform MVP since 2017. 19.20 - 19:40 Break & Pizza 19:40 - 20:30 Event TBC EVENT SPONSORS - University of South Wales https://southwales.ac.uk - DLM Consultants http://dlmconsultants.com LOCATION The venue is USW Cardiff, 86-88 Adam St, Cardiff CF24 2FN.
