The Docker democratization started long ago with developers. Containerization is very popular for stateless applications but nowadays databases are also becoming an important part of the customer CI/CD pipeline. Fortunately, Microsoft kept up by providing the support for MSSQL databases on Docker regardless the underlying operating system (Windows and Linux).

This session aims to provide feedbacks and challenges we faced during the implementation of a CI/CD pipeline including a SQL database project and SQL Server containers in order to reduce the time-to-market for customers.
