Learn from expert industry speakers at SQL in the City Summits in the US and APAC

Following the inaugural SQL in the City Summit in London, we’re excited to take the event on tour over the coming weeks, bringing major industry figures together to present in Los Angeles, Austin, Australia and New Zealand.

Redgate’s Summits aim to demonstrate how data professionals can deliver value faster, while keeping data safe, by adopting DevOps for the database.

In an age of increasingly stringent data protection legislation across the globe, this compliant database DevOps approach is gaining a lot of attention and the Summits will feature well-known figures from the DevOps world alongside Microsoft Data Platform MVPs, consultants and IT experts.

Known in DevOps circles as ‘the man in the black shirt’, Donovan wrote the forward to the report and is passionate about including the database in DevOps.

He’ll also be sharing his experiences of what you need to know before launching a DevOps Initiative as part of the panel Q&A alongside Microsoft MVPs Brian Randell and Ike Ellis.

In Austin on May 23, Jeffrey Palermo, CEO of Clear Measure, will talk about what to consider when scoping a DevOps project, how to instigate cultural change to support it, and creating a game plan for a successful proof of concept.

And over in Australia and New Zealand the founder of SQL Down Under, Greg Low, will provide a detailed introduction to Azure DevOps, and show how compliant database DevOps fits into the picture.

Other speakers involved in all three Summits Down Under include Microsoft MVPs Steve Jones, Hamish Watson and Warwick Rudd, as well as Microsoft Data Platform Consultant, Kelly Broekstra.

Redgate’s Microsoft Data Platform MVPs, Kendra Little and Steve Jones, will also be joined by Pre-Sales Engineers and data specialists all aiming to share their expertise of Compliant Database DevOps. Each of the one-day Summits will give Senior Data Platform Professionals the knowledge they need to implement a consistent, scalable, and repeatable process to help their teams keep application and database development in sync, while protecting data at every stage.
