Have you heard the phrase “Automate All the Things”? That seemed to be the top buzz phrase of 2018 and means different things to different people.
Kicking off the T-SQL Tuesday season for 2019, I would like to ask, what does “Automate All the Things” mean to you? Everyone’s environment is different, everyone’s day-to-day looks different, everyone is a fan of different technologies and everyone’s environment is of different size. While I might want to automate checking of my backup success across my 500 servers, you might want to automate how new servers are provisioned. This can be a very broad topic, that could include a broad range of technologies. You might choose one type of technology to accomplish a task, where I might choose another.
So technically there are two tasks for this month:
- What do you want to automate or what automation are you proud of completing?
- What is your go-to technology for automation?
- Code Deployments
- VS Code
- T-SQL (honorable mention)
