Next Meeting

Date Wednesday, May 3, 2017, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker Eric Courville

Topic: Integrating SQL Server and the CI/CD Toolchain - Eric Courville

With the advent of better PowerShell and SQL Server integration we can start leveraging build automation to deploy our SQL environments.  We can also speed up development time by integrating with continuous integration / continuous delivery (CI/CD) toolchains.  In this talk I will create specific build steps into a Jenkins Pipeline and show how you can create approval gates to govern developer deployment of T-SQL objects.  Then we will also demo using Jenkins to build and deploy a cloud-based SQL Server environment that developers could request straight from Jenkins. 

Eric Courville is a Cloud and Datacenter MVP and has supported databases over the last twenty years on Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL.  Eric leads the Northern California Powershell User Group in the Bay Area and by day works with OpenStack and AWS.

The Sacramento SQL Server User Group meets the first Wednesday of every month. Most sessions will have a presentation; however, throughout the year we schedule a few group sessions designed to provide a forum that allows attendees to discuss real-world SQL Server related questions, issues and concerns which are addressed as a group.

We start each meeting with some time to network and get situated. Unless otherwise noted, the schedule for each meeting will be:

6:00 PM - 6:15 PM: Mingle/networking, get food & beverages, presentation setup
