Watch the Manual DBA v Automated Deployment Challenge

At last year’s SQL in the City, I played the part of a manual DBA making changes and deploying those from development to test, staging, and production environments. Actually, I don’t think we went to production because I didn’t have time.

My co-worker, Tom Austin, showcased the automated process using SQL Source Control and other Redgate tools. As much as I believe in using tools, and despite the fact I regularly use them,  even I was impressed by how much less work the automated process took.

Watch our session below.

    Suggestion:
    When you do a demo, please remove yourself from video stream. You are demoing the stuff, not yourself, and so you are using some useful part of real estate of the screen and thus blocking that content from the view. Thanks!

    I’m not sure what you mean. At the beginning of the demo there is some split screen, but the video changes to the entire screen.
