Thanks to everyone that attended my Continuous Integration for Databases talk today. I’ve included download links to the deck here if you’re interested.
Slides: CI for Databases.pptx
I’d also recommend that you check out a few other resources if you want to get CI working.
- Getting Started Testing Databases with tSQLt
- Introduction to Continuous Integration Servers
- Continuous Integration for SQL Server Databases
Some great questions on testing and the entire CI process and I hope I answered them all. If not, please feel free to ask.
Keep in mind that the process isn’t about specific tools. The Red Gate tools work great, and help you get this running quickly and smoothly, but CI is about automating a process that you likely do manually already. It does it consistently and automatically, with less room for error.
If you are looking for more information, check out the CI resources at Red Gate.
