Tuesday May 26th, 2015 Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

May 26th, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Keith Callis with a talk on Fluent Migrator: Managing SQL Objects from within Visual Studio.

Abstract: How to manage database object as part of a Visual Studio solution using Fluent Migrator. Compare Fluent Migrator to some other tools for managing database changes. We’ll step through several samples of how Fluent Migrator can be used to help manage database changes that helps developers for their database environment. Using C# code, database object changes now falls under source control, making tracking of changes easier. Deployment process becomes easier and can include back out process for multiple environments (Development, Test, and Production).

Bio: Keith Callis is a Principal Consultant at SDS, Inc. currently based in Cincinnati with many years of experience developing software across multiple environments using different databases and programming languages based on customer requirements. His current agile projects (Pivotal Tracker) are using .NET, MVC, C#, JSON, JavaScript, and SQL Server (Fluent Migrator, TSQL, SSRS). When not writing software, he is amateur photographer or chef in his kitchen.

Immediately following the main speaker and pizza we will be holding another CINARC (Cincinnati Software Architecture Group). This session will feature more discussion on topics chosen the night of the meeting. The focus of the meeting will be to discuss issues of software architecture relevant to the members of the community.

Pizza and drinks will be provided by our sponsors.
