Today myself, Pramod Sadalage, and Nick Ashley (both of ThoughtWorks) are giving a tutorial on applying many of the techniques which I wrote about in Agile Database Techniques (www.ambysoft.com/agileDatabaseTechniques.html). We'll be talking about agile data modeling, the need for data professionals and developers to work together in an effective manner, and how to organize your database(s) to support these things. More importantly we're going to do live demos of how to set up a developer's workstation with the current version of the development database, go through several database refactorings to show you step by step how to do it, and show how to deploy into production.

I hope you can come to this tutorial this afternoon. Afterwards I'll post my observations as to how it went.

The tutorial seemed to go pretty well. Towards the end we had a bug in the final demo but other than that things went well.

People were really interested in the tools we were using, including Ant (http://ant.apache.org), CVS (https://www.cvshome.org/) and in particular Cruise Control (http://cruisecontrol.sourceforge.net).

Many of the techniques which we showed are described at www.agiledata.org as well as in the book Agile Database Techniques (www.ambysoft.com/agileDatabaseTechniques.html).
