Refactoring Databases: Evolutionary Database Design

For years the norm for developers was to work in an iterative and incremental manner but for database developers to work in a more serial manner. The predominance of evolutionary development methods make it clear that the two groups need to work in the same manner to be productive as a team. Pramod presents material from "Refactoring Databases " on implementing evolutionary database development.

Pramod Sadalage is the co-author of the 2007 Jolt Productivity Award winning "Refactoring Databases: Evolutionary Database Development" and author of "Recipes for Continuous Database Integration". Pramod works as a DBA and developer at ThoughtWorks on large custom-developed applications which use agile. He has pioneered the practices and processes of agility in the database.
