WinOps London 2017 was my first international conference as speaker. WinOps it’s conference dedicated to DevOps in the “Windows world” and I’m proud to have been part of the event. At the time I was excited and scared, the lineup of speakers was great: Jeffrey Snover, Steve Thair, Elton Stoneman, Rob Reynolds and others. I also found two familiar faces: Alex Yates and Ed Elliott. I felt like a little kid playing with the big game with the grown ups. It was a …
In July at Porto.Data community I made a presentation about the deployment pipeline for Azure SQL databases.
In June I made the presentation “Operations for databases – the agile/devops journey” at DevOps Lisbon. This talk is the combination of the different moments of my agile journey through Scrum and Kanban and the operations scope at three different levels: database, application and infrastructure. It was great to present to DevOps Lisbon community and I’m hoping to repeat in future.
In March 2017 I made the presentation “Delivering changes for databases and applications” especially focusing Azure platform.
This was my second time as a speaker at SQLSaturday Lisbon and this time the session was about “Delivering changes for databases and applications”. As usual was a well organized event, a great experience.

Scrum Gathering Portugal was my last event of 2016. My good friend Miguel Alho (@MytyMyky) and I delivered the workshop “DevOps: delivering changes for applications and databases”. The purpose was to explore the key technical (and cultural) aspects of creating a continuous delivery pipeline, from code inception to getting the conde into production. We created so much and so good material that we hope we can repeat this experience/workshop in the future.
24HOP Portuguese is a online event that is organized and executed by PASS together with Portuguese and Brazilian SQL Server communities a and with the support of Global Portuguese Virtual Chapter. The event had 24 sessions in Portuguese about Microsoft data platform. My session was about state vs migrations approach for database source control.
This was my second SQLSaturday Porto as member of the organization team and my first time as speaker. After the stressful initial preparation: conference rooms, speakers room, check-in area, networking/coffee break area and all the other logistic details, I presented my session about source control for database. The feeling and the feedback from attendees and speakers about the event organization was globally positive. The same thing can be said about my talk. You can find the slides here:
