Title: An Introduction to Source Control and CICD for SQL Databases


This presentation will be a brief introduction on utilizing source control from SQL Server.  It utilizes Visual Studio, SQL Server, and Azure DevOps to track schema changes to the database, associate them with work items, and automate the build and release process.
