SQL Saturday #279 in Phoenix – March 29, 2014
This weekend, SQL Saturday #279 is in Phoenix. I am lucky enough to have been selected to present 2 sessions. I speak at 9:45 AM in DBA - Room: Room 4 on some tips that I have used to help me with Release Management. I also speak at 4:00 PM in that same room on Documentation. I have given these sessions before and really enjoy the topics, as well as the discussions that come from them.
Since we always will have to make changes to our production systems, coming up with a descent plan of attack that can be repeated to allow controlled and graceful change to occur seems like a no brainer to me. I have spent a lot of time in different organizations fine tuning processes to allow for this to occur, and it is always changing.
I believe that every person in this and many other fields of work would tell you that we lack documentation. Maybe authors don’t complain about that. But I bet a lot of others will agree. What to document, when, how, and so on. I hope in this session to give you a slew of examples, templates and ideas on how to document the things that matter most to you.
In both of these sessions, I hope to really share with you my experience, examples and tricks, and hope that you will be inspired to improve your own shop, make a change for the better, and come out of these sessions with something gained, be it directly related to what I talk and show or not, it matters not to me. Just that you are inspired, and become better for that inspiration.
It has been a long time since I was in the Phoenix area, and with the winter we have had, I look forward to a tease of warm weather for a couple days.
If you can make it out to this free event, please do. Come and learn and network and experience the #SQLFamily as we share and grow together.
