My bio

This page is intended as a resource for conference organisers and as a single, source controlled, source of truth for my speaker bio and latest headshots.

My standard bio for conferences is as follows:

Alex Yates has been helping organisations to apply DevOps principles to relational database development and deployment since 2010. He’s most proud of helping Skyscanner develop the ability to deploy 95 times a day. Originally for Redgate, later for DLM Consultants, Alex has worked with clients on every continent except Antarctica – so he’s keen to meet anyone who researches penguins.

A keen community member, he co-organises Data Relay, is the founder of and has been recognised as a Microsoft Data Platform MVP since 2017.
