I first learned about dbdeploy last year while watching Harrie Verveer talking at PfCongres about database version control. More recently he also wrote a blog post about it. At first I thought dbdeploy wasn’t interesting enough because of two limitations:
1. Dbdeploy could only handle numbering for patch numbers and would only apply patches based on the last applied patch number. Because at work we are using several branches in Subversion, patchnumbers would easily conflict with each other or patches wouldn’t be applied since the numbering would be too low.
2. Dbdeploy cannot handle PHP patches, it will only handle SQL patches.
About two weeks ago I attended the Dutch PHP Conference or short DPC. It was awesome, but it’s always been awesome every year I attended. I wrote a blog post for PHPWomen about it, you can read it here.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got an email this morning that I got accepted as speaker for PfCongres. It will be held on the 17th September 2011 and the schedule is great (I’m not saying this just because I will be speaking, it really is). There is a dutch track and an english track. I will be speaking in the dutch track about Introducing Quality Management from a practical point of view. Hope to see you there!
