Agile Database Techniques: Data Doesn’t Have To Be A Four-Letter Word Anymore

Data is clearly an important aspect of software-based systems, a fact that the information technology (IT) industry has understood for decades, yet many agile development teams are struggling to involve data professionals within their projects. The Agile Data (AD) methodology defines a philosophical framework for data-oriented activities within agile projects, defining ways that application developers and data professionals can work together effectively. However, philosophy isn’t enough, you also need proven techniques which support those philosophies. In this presentation Scott Ambler discusses techniques for agile database development, including: database refactoring, Agile-Model Driven Development (AMDD), Test-Driven Design (TDD), and environment/tool strategies.
