Food, Drinks will be provided!
SQL Social brings together Database & BI professionals, industry experts and those with an appetite for learning more about data & information management, in a relaxed atmosphere to network, share ideas, impart knowledge, and have a great time whilst doing so.
We will provide you with plenty of food and drinks for the evening, all thanks to our fantastic sponsors (see below). Networking
At SQL Social, our aim is to give YOU the opportunity to meet with MVPs, well-known speakers, experienced professionals & industry experts and ask them about the data-related topics that matter to you. It is an opportunity to meet new people, make new friendships and find out what is going on in the data industry in Melbourne.
This Month's Speaker and Topic
Once again we have a first-time speaker presenting to us.
Sudarshan Narasimhan (https://thesqldude.com/) - DBOps - The Old New Thing
Sudarshan (https://thesqldude.com/about/)is a SQL professional formerly from Microsoft CSS and has worked in various roles including Tech Lead, Database Architect, Engineer and is currently a DBA by trade.
He has authored several KB articles, MSDN blogs and you can find his SQL server musings at TheSQLDude.com. In recent times, he has been working on AWS and other relational databases with a focus on database Infrastructure as Code (IAC).
This session will be interactive and is Sudarshan's take on the changes occurring in the world of a traditional DBA/DB Developer and what skills are now a must have in the new world and how some skills will never go away.
This is DevOps meets DBA, and what he likes to call “DBOps” – a fusion of DevOps and a Database professional.
Come along and let’s talk about Automation, PowerShell, Deployments and of course SQL scripts 😊
