I am very excited to announce that ReadyRoll — the flagship product of my new startup of the same name — has today graduated to Version 1.0!
Working on this product has been one of the most satisfying experiences of my career. Of course this is just the initial release; there’s a barrel of items in the backlog that I’ll be focusing on next, particularly in the areas of usability and performance.
When I first started working on ReadyRoll, one of my goals was to help bridge the growing divide between Developers (responsible for building databases to meet the needs of the business) and Database Administrators (the custodians of an organisation’s data, aka the people who get the 3AM wakeup calls).
As a former DevOps guy, I have had the opportunity to work with both Developers and DBAs, and it’s my hope that I can provide them with a tool that helps solve a problem they share: bearing in mind the subtleties of working with schemas, how can an organisation achieve a repeatable and reliable database deployment process?
So without any further ado, it’s time to get rolling!
