A Version Control Primer for Databases

This is a talk for database people that might not be familiar with version control and how it can be used with database code.


With modern DevOps software development, there is a need for the database code to be tightly integrated with application code, and this requires the use of a version control system (VCS).

This session will examine the basics of version control, the different types of systems, and how we can use them for database code. There is an emphasis on Git, as this is the most popular VCS in use today.
