When Redgate purchased ReadyRoll a few years ago, I wasn’t sure this was a great idea. After all, SQL Source Control and DLM Automation work really well to bundle up changes in a VCS and easily deploy them.
However, as I worked with Daniel Nolan, the creator, and learned more about the tool, the more I liked it. After all, I’ve worked for a number of companies that used a migration strategy to make changes to our applications. I also like Visual Studio, so this was a great fit for me.
At SQL in the City streamed last year, I presented a short talk on using ReadyRoll to deploy changes. I’ll write more about individual parts of this in 2017, but take a look at this video and see if ReadyRoll works for you.
