Redgate has built a great reputation for writing in-depth technical and useful how-to guides to help users make the most of our tools and solutions. But when you’re installing a piece of software for the first time, or wanting to know how to use an advanced feature, some practical advice like a walkthrough or demo is also welcome.
That’s why Redgate has established the Redgate University, an online resource where you’ll find self-paced training courses with easy to follow classes to help you and your team learn the fundamentals and best practices, and get top tips from the experts.
Visit the Redgate University online and you’ll find a range of courses hosted by Redgate’s Microsoft Data Platform MVPs and sales engineers, which currently include:
SQL Source Control
In this course, a series of 17 classes take participants from installation all the way up to getting the most out of the advanced operations in SQL Source Control to help them set the foundation for continuous integration and continuous delivery.
SQL Change Automation (with SQL Source Control projects)
For participants who are already familiar with version control, the ten classes in this course show how automation can be introduced into the development pipeline using SQL Change Automation alongside SQL Source Control.
The 20 classes in the SQL Monitor course have been designed to introduce participants to the basics like installation and configuration, as well as the advanced features which can help them proactively monitor their SQL Server estate.
There are many challenges to masking data as it moves through the different development environments and the 16 classes in this course show participants how to overcome them using a combination of SQL Clone and SQL Data Masker.
Importantly for participants, each of the courses is divided into modules so you can self-select the learning you need to match the level of knowledge you already have. The classes in each module are also around five minutes or less in length, so the learning can be fitted into a busy day in bite-size segments.
The SQL Source Control course, for example, has four modules so you can quickly choose from the basics like linking a database to the source control system already in place for applications to more advanced features like using object locking and setting up filters:
- Getting Started – 5 classes
- Working with SQL Source Control – 5 classes
- Advanced SQL Source Control operations – 4 classes
- Manual Deployments with SQL Source Control – 3 classes
More Redgate University courses coming soon
We’re busy filming new courses to jump-start the introduction of Redgate tools to your team and help you get the most out of them. If you have any suggestions on future courses, or any feedback, or you want to be notified when new classes are available, please do get in touch.
