Modernize Your Database Development Process with DevOps Tools

Are you still thinking about modernizing your database development process ... someday? Do you have directories full of .sql files you use to build your application? You know unit tests should be included as part of your build process and you are going to start adding them ... maybe next week? You may believe that modernizing your development process would be difficult, too time-consuming, and expensive, but if you have an Oracle Cloud account, you may be surprised at what tools you already have access to and how easy it is to get started. Join Blaine Carter as he takes a look at the Oracle Developer Cloud Service. He'll talk about some of the tools that are included and explore mixing in some open source tools you can use to automate building and testing your applications. The sooner you get started, the more effort it will save you in the long run.

Blaine Carter

Blaine Carter is the Oracle developer advocate for open source. He applies his exploratory eye and tinkering inclinations to the intersection of open source and Oracle Database. He helps database developers improve their workflow using open source tools and promotes the use of open source inside and outside of Oracle. Blaine started programming in 1995. For most of his career, he has used Oracle tools to build applications. Blaine has worked with Oracle Forms and Oracle Reports and even created a framework to generate web applications using PL/SQL similar to Oracle Application Express. He has done a little Java, both inside and outside the database, and of course a whole bunch of SQL and PL/SQL. Blaine is a firm believer in learning by doing, failing, figuring it out, and then sharing.
