Automating database deployments with Redgate SQL Source Control and Octopus Deploy

Speaker: Shawn Sesna

Summary: In this presentation, I will demonstrate how to use Redgate SQL Source Control to automate database changes and deploy them using Octopus Deploy. This demonstration will include hooking up to source control, building, and deployment using Octopus Deploy.

Call for Speakers

Peter Palka is trying to put together a 6 month calendar of speakers and topics. Peter would like to start having two presentations per meeting. One topic could be a short 15 minute presentation and then the other could be a 60-90 minute topic. 

 If you have done something you think is noteworthy that others could benefit from, Peter would like to hear from you. He is willing to help you turn any ideas you have into a presentation. OASSUG is a user group, provided and supported by local area SQL Server users.

  Remember you don’t have to do a full-blown 90 minute presentation; even just a short presentation would be a great way to support our local SQL Server user group.
