I love this quote from Kevin Hill (and not because he mentions me):
There’s more but those are top 3— SQL Cyclist (@Kevin3NF) November 9, 2019
The reason being, he’s right. I’m spending time rewriting some of my own sample code to use DBATools. I’ll try to post some of it here when I get it together. I’ve been screaming about the importance of containers in general and Docker in particular for quite a while now. Finally, I use Git. So should you.
However, getting started with Git, especially in a database, isn’t that easy.
You might notice Kendra’s name in the tweet above. She’s one of the smarter, more capable people I know. Further, she really knows how to use Git. Even better, she’s an excellent teacher.
Why am I praising Kendra so much?
Because next week, during the Redgate Streamed event, Kendra is going to be putting an a class on Git. She’s going to cover the basics of how Git works, but she’s also going to drill down on how to get your database into Git. While Kendra does work for Redgate and this is an event that Redgate is hosting, this is a purely educational, #sqlfamily, community-focused session.
As Kevin says above, no one who plans on continuing in this career can ignore Docker, DBATools or Git. If you want a leg up on Git, this session from Kendra is going to be great way to get going.
