Improving Team Collaboration Using Database Projects and Azure DevOps
Having source control in place sounds like the default these days. Although, a lot of companies didn’t implement source control yet. This session will guide you how to setup source control step by step, using Database Projects and Azure DevOps.
At the beginning of the session, a couple of use cases will be explained why it is important to use source control within your organization (use cases out of personal experiences). Some examples: deployments take a lot of time, change of priorities, urgent bugfixing, fast growing team perhaps…
During the session the ease of use will become clear and multiple ways how to setup source control will be explained step by step.
Do you want to have everything in source control at once or would you like a phased approach, everything is possible if you know how to start. Principles of Git will be explained shortly.
Near the end of the session, a couple of topics will be covered on how to move forward after a successful implementation of database projects and Azure DevOps since this is only the beginning.
At the end of the session, you should have a starting position to be able to start your adventure and where you might get to in the end.
Olivier Van Steenlandt is a Business Intelligence Professional who spent most of his early career assisting retail companies to get more value of their data using the Microsoft BI Stack (SSIS, SSAS, SSRS, Power BI).
As his first experience in the field (in Business Intelligence), Olivier worked as a Big Data Analyst using tools such as Hadoop and Spark.
In 2015 the focus changed to traditional data warehousing & reporting using SSIS, SSRS & MicroStrategy. A bit later, around June 2019, the opportunity arose to fill the position of BI Teamlead. In this function he was able to set up a hybrid BI Team (team members in Belgium and Belarus).
Early 2020, Olivier joined the dataMinds crew as a core member, assisting to organise several events.
Around April 2021, Olivier started a new position as BI Teamlead in another Retail Company to support business growth. Besides the challenge to help the BI Team grow and deliver projects on time, he started to use SSAS & Power BI.
When Olivier is not working there is a high chance that you find him on a football field, studying (BI Related) or playing music (Saxophone / Piano).
