Design and build truly agile databases that can be changed frequently, safely, and painlessly, no matter how much existing data they must manage! With this book, you'll finally get past old-fashioned "batch-and-queue" database development, and construct a truly agile database development environment that works! Pioneering agile database expert Max Guernsey III combines a complete foundation of theoretical knowledge with concrete examples and real solutions to the impediments that have prevented database developers from going agile. Guernsey especially shows how to adapt agile principles to handle massive amounts of existing data that makes database change more difficult. Agile Database Developmentis based on the training curricula for the author's pioneering NetObjectives course, Database Agility Online Training, which has helped hundreds of database professionals master critical technical skills for designing databases that can be changed frequently, safely, and painlessly. Reflecting his immense experience with agile database development, Guernsey helps you make sure all databases and data remain consistent in agile environments; ensure stability no matter how fast databases change; and test-drive designs to find and fix errors before they're "baked into" the system. This book will be an invaluable resource for virtually every database analyst and DBA in agile organizations; for many database team, project, and group managers; and for even more agile development team members in organizations that rely on large and complex databases. Agile Database Development is the newest title in the highly-respected NetObjectives Lean-Agile Series.
