Alex Yates is an experienced DevOps and Pre-Sales Engineer who has worked with SQL Server at Red Gate since 2010. In that time, he has worked with hundreds of companies across six continents to help them with Database Lifecycle Management (DLM) issues. For example, he helped Skyscanner to set up the single click deployment of over 300 SQL Server databases across 4 data centers and he worked with the 100+ person team at Farm Credit Services of America to standardize SQL Server source control and delivery processes, allowing both companies to deliver software significantly more quickly and reliably.
Recently Alex has been writing and delivering DLM training courses in Europe and working with Red Gate partners to deliver the training around the world. Since March 2014 Alex has created www.workingwithdevs.com where he blogs DLM tutorials, best practice, organizational culture and opinion pieces and he has also become a regular speaker in Europe and North America at events such as Live360, BASTA!, NDC Oslo, SQL in the City and a bunch of SQL Saturdays and SQL Relays.
Alex brings a great deal of passion and energy to share his knowledge with the community. We at DataPlatformGeeks thank him for his unconditional support to our community efforts.
