by Jan 25, 2016

It’s that time again! IDERA’s next Twitter Chat will be held on Wednesday, February 17 from 11 AM to 12 PM  (CST).

This chat will revolve around automating your database environment. Questions will focus on what tasks and tools people commonly automate, techniques they use to do so, and more. This chat will be hosted by Mike Fal, Senior Database Administrator for Xero.

Mike Fal is a SQL Server DBA with more than 10 years of experience. He has worked in several industries, including healthcare, software development, marketing, and manufacturing, and has experience supporting databases from 1 GB to 4 TB in size. Mike is also a part of IDERA’s Advisors and Community Educators (ACE) program.

This #SQLChat will allow members from the SQL community to discuss SQL Server’s biggest topics with IDERA product experts, and have a chance to win a giveaway prize. This month’s giveaway prize is a Juice Pack H2O PRO from Mophie. With a $130 value, this iPhone case has both waterproof protection and an extra battery.
