List of resources for database continuous integration

Published 9 May 2012 12:14 pm

Because there is so little information on database continuous integration out in the wild, I’ve taken it upon myself to aggregate as much as possible and post the links to this blog. Because it’s my area of expertise, this will focus on SQL Server and Red Gate tooling, although I am keen to include any quality articles that discuss the topic in general terms.

Please let me know if you find a resource that I haven’t listed!

    Thanks David. I’m sold but need to convince management. It would be interesting to have CI on my DB’s before we have CI on the C# app code. :-)

    Maybe turn the tables on management and ask them for reasons to not implement continuous integration! It would definitely be highly unusual for database continuous integration to be put in place before app code, but no reason why not!
