Want to save hours diff-ing databases before releases trying to figure out what changed? And making sure all your ducks are in a row to release the changes.
Ever found yourself ready to test something, only to find someone dropped the table you were using in a shared database?
Are you a database expert that would like to spend less time executing other people’s SQL scripts and more time providing advice?
Are you responsible for a system and would like more confidence when releasing updates? Would you like to find out about problems before you release database changes? And at the same time release changes faster?
Do you secretly wish databases were easier to work with?
Come join us and learn how to tame your database. We’ll look at techniques like versioning database changes, leveraging local databases, automating the application of changes, and automating database changes during releases. Some of the tools we’ll look at: RoundHouse, fluentmigrator, Entity Framework migrations, and TSqlMigrations for database migrations. We’ll see how diffing tools like SQL Compare fit into the picture. And how you can orchestrate an automated testing and release process with TeamCity
