Speaking at SQL Saturday 92 - Agile Database Development!

26 September 2011

I have just been accepted to do a 90-minute presentation at SQL Saturday 92, in Portland, Oregon. The topic? Database Development: Keep it Agile, Not Fragile.

The world of software development is accelerating. The time between a project idea and its release date is shrinking. That means developers, business staff, and IT personnel need to do iterative (a.k.a. agile) design and development. Agile development for most types of systems is a known quantity. Agile development for databases is harder, and the best practices are more obscure.

Having done a few hundred database releases in an agile fashion, I’ll be presenting best practices, anti practices, tips, tricks, demos, and scripts you can use. Don’t miss out!
