Liquibase for DBAs

01 Jun 2016

The role of the Database Administrator is evolving and has never been more complex.

2015 Survey Results

25 Sep 2015

There were 136 responses to the 2015 Liquibase Survey. Since I’m relying on self-selection for people answering the survey, the first question is how representative is the data. The only two “demographic” survey questions I have alternate data points for are version used and country.
