Database Schema Versioning

I went to Greg Low‘s presentation titled- Database Schema Versioning: How to Use Microsoft Visual Studio Team System for Database Professionals and Team Foundation Server to Version and Deploy Your Databases. Phew! What a long title 🙂

Half the room was filled up with fellow Readifarians and the talk was great. Greg gave an introduction to the Microsoft Visual Studio Team System for Database Professionals aka DataDude and as the title of the presentation suggests how changes to the database schema can be versioned and moved across to different instances (prod, test, etc) of the same database. He also spoke about things such as refactoring, unit testing and building of the database. The other interesting thing that Greg showed was the data generating features of the product.
