PortoData 15th December 2015 – Road to database automation

Last Tuesday (15 December 2015) I made my first presentation in Porto.Data community. “Road to database automation” was the title and the this session had two main goals: discuss the challenges of database inclusion in the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and present a set of strategies and tools to achieve this inclusion.

The effort of database inclusion in the “agile context” is designated as Database Lifecycle Management (DLM) and is composed by 3 main parts: database source control, database continuous integration and database continuous delivery.

In the first approach to database automation are presented some strategies/techniques and tools, such as Mercurial (TortoiseHg) and Git (SourceTree) for source control and Flyway for database migrations management,  to deal with the challenges that a database version control system implies.
