Database DevOps - Building better systems
Senior Solutions Architect
Principal DevOps Advocate
Our first webinar discussed how loosely coupled architectures lead to maintainability, innovation, and safety. Join us for part two and learn how to transition a mature system from one architecture to another.
This webinar is for people who want to deliver safer schema deployments. We’ll focus on broad strategies for safe database deployment patterns and challenging schema refactors.
Join Alex Yates and Derek Campbell to learn:
- Why self-service, disposable environment provisioning with realistic data is critical
- How to architect your deployments for safety, with zero downtime and fast rollbacks
- The strangler pattern for testing the untestable and isolating risk
These webinars are inspired by Alex’s safe schema updates blog series.

Senior Solutions Architect – Octopus Deploy
Alex Yates helps folks deliver measurably improved business outcomes through Octopus Deploy. He's been working with the product since v1. In 2013 he was a pre-sales engineer for an Octopus competitor, but their product didn't stack up. By 2014 the business decided to exit the deployment orchestration market, and Alex helped the existing customers switch to Octopus. Now he's hooked! Most of Alex's experience is in solving challenging database problems, primarily for SQL Server.
