Source Control & SQL Server: Why & How

In this session we will investigate the concept of Source Control and how it relates to application databases. Although with strict standards in place for most organizations as it relates to their application code, the methods in which databases are monitored for changes is often far less "stellar" in consistency and reliability. We will review a few common tools & techniques and then discuss in detail the solutions available from the folks at Red Gate.
