Postgres database versioning and schema migration with Git and Flyway
I started my career in industrial automation, writing software for circumference gauge measurement machines.
I eventually transitioned to bespoke .NET development at a local software house. I've done everything from legacy CRM development to implementing a completely bespoke ERP for a local industrial automation and design firm (it's weird how life goes full circle).
I'm currently a senior developer and architect for VSc Solutions, a logistics and supply chain management provider. My responsibilities include evaluation and selection of technologies as well as the architecture and design of our virtual supply chain portal.
No video of the event yet, sorry!
We use Git and Flyway to automate our schema migrations. It greatly reduces the friction of merging schema changes made by multiple developers on a project. It also produces a migration that is consistent across environments as well as allowing us to run additional environment specific scripts as part of the migration.
