Aspects and benefits of distributed version control systems (DVCS)
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This blog post is a by-product of my preparation work for an upcoming talk titled "Why you should be using a distributed version control system (DVCS) for your project" at SAPO Codebits in Lisbon (December 3-5, 2009). Publishing these thoughts prior to the conference serves two purposes: getting some peer review on my findings and acting as a teaser for the actual talk. So please let me know — did I cover the relevant aspects or did I miss anything? What's your take on DVCS vs. the …

How do you version your database schemas?

There are quite a lot of different options. On some very small / trivial applications developed by just one person, it might be acceptable to use ad-hoc queries (maybe with a GUI) to manage the schema - but this runs the risk of development and production schemas becoming out of sync (or rather, out of sync with their respective versions of code).

Requirements are typically

Data Corruption!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

At the start of this week, we suffered a corruption of our main 5.1 source code repository at MySQL. No data was lost, but I spent most of four working days on cleaning up the corruption, Monty spent one day, and many other people had to spend time on this or were stalled in their work while the problem was being resolved. Including the usual stories with fetching off-site backup tapes only to find them broken, etc.

Our source code repository is the centre that all our work in Engineering revolves around, and it just has to be stable. The confidence in the revision control software that we use suffers greatly from such an experience, and the lost confidence can …
