Source control is a way of life for developers – it’s a way of sharing code, of protecting our work, and of saving our bacon when things go wrong. So why aren’t you using it with your database? Technology used to be a major issue for many companies – there were few available solutions, so those that did implement database source control had to cobble together their own systems. That issue has been largely overcome in recent years with the release of lifecycle tools like Red Gate’s. However, the business challenges remain, and they can be quite intimidating, to say the least. In this session, I’ll describe some of the challenges I’ve seen, and we’ll discuss how the opportunities that lie beyond make the implementation of source control worthwhile.
