CodeStock 2018 – Your Vote Counts

CodeStock is an annual technology conference for developers, IT professionals, and entrepreneurs held in Knoxville, TN. The conference spans two full days and is packed with technical & entrepreneurial content. 2018 will mark the 11th year of the CodeStock conference and is expected to host over 75 speakers presenting on over 100 topics that span the gamut from best practice enterprise software development to cutting edge web techniques to managing a technical entrepreneurial endeavor.


Last year was my 1st time speaking at CodeStock and I had a great time. It was one of my favorite conferences in 2017.


One thing which sets Codestock apart from most of the other conferences is the fact that it’s the ‘Community’ who shapes this conference. It is YOU who decide what the final schedule of Codestock will look like. Based on the community voting, the sessions with the most number of votes are selected.

Please go to, login/register, check out the sessions, and click the VOTE button for any sessions which interests you.

Below are the 2 abstracts I have submitted this year. Please do vote for my sessions and also check out the other awesome talks – and help make Codestock 2018 one of the best so far!

Improving Software Quality and Managing Technical Debt with SonarQube

The importance of Code Quality in Software Development has increased over the period of time. With the right set of tools and processes, developers can make complex changes and deploy them to Production confidently. By leveraging the power of Static Code Analysis, developers can get an early feedback for their code changes. SonarQube has a collection of rules to analyze your source code at compile time to identify potential vulnerabilities, bugs, anti-patterns, refactoring and poor coding practices.

Come join me in this 60 min session to learn about a free, open source, static code analysis tool which can help you to identify anti-patterns in your codebase. We will also learn how to integrate SonarQube with Visual Studio 2017 and your TFS CI/CD build so that you can reject code check-ins when Quality Gates are not met.

DevOps, Continuous Integration & Database Lifecycle Management: Rule them all

Do you want to make your deployments risk free? Do you want to deliver business values to your customers faster? Do you want to increase the efficiency of your Team? Are your application and database deployment separate processes? Do you encounter issues while deploying your database changes? Is your database slowing you down?

If the answer to any of the above questions is a Yes, then this presentation is for YOU. Come join me in this 60 min session to understand the problems with traditional database development, why organizations are moving towards achieving Continuous Integration and Database DevOps, the problems it tries to solve and learn about the toolsets which will assist you in this journey towards painless database deployments.

I hope to see you all there. Cheers!
