Topic: SQL FineBuild - How to automate and repeat installation and configuration of SQL Server
Date: Thur 28th Apr, 5.00pm-7.00pm

Ed Vassie


SQL FineBuild is a free and open source tool to automate and repeat one-click installs of SQL Server; complete with service packs, cumulative updates, tooling, and best practice settings.

Ed Vassie, one of the developers, will lead us through how to get started with the tool and dig into the configurable options.
SQL FineBuild has been in use since 2008 (showcased in SQL Mag) and includes clustering support and support for SQL 2016.
