Source control systems have been successfully used for years by developers for collaborating without colliding. Todays DBA's must work closely with development teams to ensure that the solutions created are optimal. We will review the outlines of various source control platforms including Microsoft Team Foundation Server, Subversion and Mercurial and how to interact with them. The second half of the session will be an overview and discussion of techniques and practices to provide database versioning and how to ensure that every build of the application is able to have a matching version of the database.

The SQL Server Special Interest Group (SQL SIG) was founded in a partnership between Bennett Adelson and Microsoft. The SQL SIG has become the forum for SQL Server collaboration and instruction from some of the brightest minds in the region. The organization was founded to provide enterprise SQL developers and DBA's the opportunity to collaborate and listen to leading experts discuss various topics within SQL Server. Members include a broad range of disciplines and experiences, from the experienced SQL DBA or developer to a novice on the Microsoft platform.
