Yay! I’m very happy to be accepted into the Friend of Redgate program in 2015 :)
As a Friend of Redgate I get to use and review their tools and provide feedback directly to the development and product teams. I might also get the opportunity to speak about and/or publish articles about their tools and how we use them to solve our problems at work.
I’ve been using the Redgate tools for years, and I love how they interact with and give back to the community. Not only do they host free SQL in the City events, they also support a lot of user groups and SQLSaturdays and publish books you can download for free. They listen to your suggestions and always have a smile on their face :) I’m very excited to see how I can help this year.
My hope and goal is to provide some good feedback on how we use their tools in a data warehouse environment, and get some help in return to learn how we can be even more efficient. There are many areas in my department we can improve, and I hope we can use the Redgate tools to streamline our deployment process and automate testing – things we struggle with in a complex environment where so many things depend on each other. I also hope I can help others by sharing our experiences by speaking or publishing blog posts or articles. This will be an exciting year!
