SQL Supper

We hope you're enjoying the fantastic weather, and since it has been so good there is no excuse for not joining us for the last SQL Supper before the summer break.

This month we continue the DevOps theme with our hosts Wintechologies sharing their experiences on database automation using Azure ARM templates and VSTS. We then get back to our community roots and look at database security for Azure SQL Database and the hybrid cloud.

We look forward to seeing you
