Welcome to the Leicester SQL Server User Group, home to the East Midlands PASS Chapter.
We meet three times a year, in February, June, and October. Our meetings generally consist of two sessions with a break in the middle, and a swift half at the Barley Mow afterwards.
Our venue is the Percy Barrett room at the YMCA on East Street in Leicester, obliquely opposite the train station.
The usual timetable is as follows:
|6:15 - 6:30||Welcome, Announcements, Discussion|
|6:30 - 7:30||Session 1|
|7:30 - 7:45||Samosas|
|7:45 - 8:45||Session 2|
|8:45 - ||Pub|
If you want to speak at an event, or have any other question, you can get in touch through the contact form on this site.
In addition to support from Microsoft and PASS, we have great giveaways from Pluralsight - Hardcore Developer and IT Training and O'Reilly Media at every event - you'll need to register and come along to find out more about these!
A CI approach to SSDT (sqlproj).
With SQL Server Data Tools providing a declarative model for building and deploy SQL Server databases, how do you integrated this into a CI environment?
I'll show you how you can utilise MSBuild to automate your build and deployment process. This session is focused on using other tools to enable Continuous Integration and less on the development side of SSDT.
Craig has worked on small databases to multi-terabyte data warehouses.
Primarily focused on performance optimization and has an unhealthy
obsession with the internals of the database and Integration Services
engine. Craig has a sound knowledge of SQLXML from creating schemas to
shredding the most complex xml blobs. Besides SQL Server Craig is also
proficient in .NET/VBA & Java Development.
