May 2018 WISSUG meeting

Adopting A DevOps Process for your Database

presented by: Steve Jones (SQLServerCentral.com)

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.
