12:30PM – 12:45PM ~ Attendee registration & networking ~ 

12:45PM – Welcome & Seminar introduction

1PM – 2PM – Team-based Database Development with Version Control, Steve Jones
An efficient development process requires that all of your team members coordinate their efforts. This session shows how a version control system and standard development practices help improve the speed and quality of your development process.

2PM– 2:15PM ~ Interactive demos with the Red Gaters in the networking area with refreshments ~

2:15PM – 3:15PM – 
Automated Build and Test, Steve Jones
Automated build and test processes such as continuous integration are essential to achieve the short feedback cycles that an agile development lifecycle requires. This session will demonstrate how checking in a database change with SQL Source Control can tell you whether your database business logic will remain functional and whether the upgrade process will succeed. You'll also see how a successful build will leave you with a database package that can be used in your deployment process.

3:15PM - 3:30PM ~ Discussions with the Red Gaters in the networking area with refreshments ~

3:30PM - 4:30PM – Best Practices for Database Deployment, Grant Fritchey
The easiest part of any deployment is running the deployment script on production. But what have you done to prepare that script for production? Was the script tested? Is the script tightly coupled with the application code? The difference between a successful deployment and a failed or problematic deployment is all the preparation work you've done to ensure that you're deploying the right script, the right way to your production environment. This session will explore best practices that you can implement to ensure that your deployments are as successful as they can be.

4:30PM – 5PM - 
Q & A with Steve Jones, Grant Fritchey and the Red Gaters 

5pm – 6pm ~ Happy Hour & continued chat in the venue bar (Drinks on Red Gate)~
