I give a presentation on "worst practices" from time to time
One of the many sections in there regards source code control/configuration management (remember, this is a worst practice talk, not a best practice - so the slides are meant to be ironic, the opposite of what is true)
In there I talk about how many people don't seem to consider their "database schema" (including code for goodness sake!) to be something that you put under source code control. Nope, you just let everyone in there and let them make changes - in the database directly.
They consider database code to be less than code - not worthy of being under any sort of change management. That is why I liked this blog entry I read this morning.
They got it right - dead on.
Think about it...
