010PHP: Database migrations with zero downtime

Ever having to put your website offline due to changing your database column? What kind of approach do you pick?

Well, Michiel Rook is going start the discussion on this issue, at this month’s meetup at Zicht Online

Database migrations with zero downtimeMichiel Rook

Does your application or service use a database?
When that application changes because of new business requirements, you may need to make changes to the database schema.
These database migrations could lead to downtime and can be an obstacle to implementing continuous delivery/deployment.

How can we deal with database migrations when we don’t want our end-users to experience downtime, and want to keep releasing?

In this talk we’ll discuss non-destructive changes, rollbacks, large datasets, useful tools and a few strategies to migrate our data safely, with minimum disruption to production.
