Issue #37 of The Data Administration Newsletter (TDAN) has just been
released. In it I have an article entitled "Introduction to Database
Refactoring" at http://www.tdan.com/i037ht01.htm
which I hope you enjoy.
As many of you may know, TDAN is a well respected publication within
the traditional data community, so I'm very pleased to see it start
to cover agile database development techniques such as DB
refactoring. If possible, I'd appreciate it if you could pass this
URL on to some of the more traditional data professionals whom you
work with so as to give them an introduction to some of the new
techniques coming their way over the next couple of years. Thanks in advance.
