About me, Kendra Little

Hi, I’m Kendra. My pronouns are she/her.

As a DevOps Advocate for Redgate, I spend most of my work time learning how to improve database engineering in the software development lifecycle. I help DBAs, developers, and leadership around the world implement tooling and processes to make changes to databases quickly and safely — without getting woken up in the middle of the night all the time, and while reducing the risk of data breaches.

In past work lives:

  • I built and ran an online paid-for training site, SQL Workbooks — courses from that site are now available here, for free, no login required
  • I co-founded Brent Ozar Unlimited and built world class SQL Server training while consulting with clients across a wide variety of industries
  • I was a database administrator and system administrator for Microsoft Corporation
  • I worked in support and build operations for a startup undergoing an agile transformation

I’m an experienced keynote presenter

I’ve delivered keynotes at both online events and in-person events. Check out a sample video here.
