Bringing Source Control into SQL Development Environments
–Part 1, Concepts and Tools
Source Control is a requirement for team development where it is necessary to coordinate and maintain one or more consistent data environments. In the past, source control has not been easy with databases due to the nature of the interrelationships between the database code (DDL) and the current data state. Source control makes it easier to know what is in a database, better expose inappropriate inclusions, and improves coordination with testing environments. In this session, we will explore the concepts and processes of adopting a robust source control regimen into a SQL Server environment.
