You Version Your Code, Why Not Your Database?
Presented by: Derek BinkleyTime: Friday, Jan. 10, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Code versioning is an integral part of any developers daily workflow. However, database changes are often handled manually making automatic code deploys a challenge. If something goes wrong, rolling back a deployment requires either complex and possibly untested scripts or a database restore.
Adding database versioning to your development environment will help you solve these issues. In the talk you will see examples of using Liquibase to manage database changes. You will learn how scripting and versioning your database structures will allow easy, scripted deployments that can be repeated by developers, in QA, and in prod. Once you see the ease at which you can deploy database changes, you will wonder how you ever got along without it.
