My new friend FoRG

In February I made a new friend, I have joined the 2016 Friends of Redgate (FoRG) Program.

I found Redgate and his products when I started working as DBA with special focus on database development and database changes delivery. SQL Source Control  and DLM Autoforg-2016-logomation Suite are great products for this purpose. However, what really impressed me were Redgate’s people: always ready to give you support, always ready to listen your feedback.

As a Friend of Redgate I have the opportunity to use their tools and provide my honest feedback about them directly to product and development teams.

So, I’m honored for being part of this community and I’ m looking forward to learn and share knowledge through my blog posts, speaking, or any other means.

SQLSaturday #485 Lisbon 2016

SQLSaturday #485 Lisbon 2016, held on February 20, was my third SQLSaturday event and my first as speaker. When  I received the email saying that my session had been accepted in schedule’s event I felt happy and honored.    sqlsatuardaylisbon2016

My session, Road to database automation, was accepted as lightning talk. So I had 10 minutes to address the first stage of the database automation: database source control and it´s benefits. During that time I presented the reasons that lead me to invest on database source control and what tools I used to achieve it. You can find my presentation in the end of this post.

The presentation went well and fast. But the best happened after the presentation: the attendees feedback and curiosity. The possibility of discuss my favorite topics with other people with similar challenges was amazing.

This post is also the opportunity to give my congratulations to the event organization, headed by André Batista @klunkySQL, who provided great moments of conviviality, and to say thank you to the portuguese sql family for welcoming me so well.
