Event description



In this all day training session you will learn the importance of getting both your application and database code into version control, how various tools can be used for automated continuous integration processes that will then feed into an automated release & deployment process for your database.

The demonstrations will take a database based application and deploy it in a Continuous Delivery pipeline utilising industry tools, such as SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), Redgate SQL Toolbelt, Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS), Git source control, Octopus Deploy, Docker and the Azure platform. The demonstrations will showcase alternative methods that can help achieve a Continuous Delivery deployment pipeline.

DevOps has revolutionised software development and deployment, where companies have utilised Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery to improve the speed and quality of their deployed applications in production.

DevOps does not just relate to Application Developers.

For too long Database Developers and Database Administrators have thought that the efficiencies and gains of implementing DevOps and agile principles are too hard for databases. Data is a key component of any application, changes in a database can affect the whole system, if the database is neglected this can result in it being the weakest link in a deployment pipeline.

Because application changes are not being synchronised with the database and the lack of automated versioned changes the efficiencies gained in application deployments can be lost when it comes to deploying to the database.
