    The way it works is simple, you have to do the same you do when you keep a history of the project’s code, so we’ll need a version control system like GIT, then we can ensure that everyone involved in the project can have the database’s changes history up-to-date. Here I’ll show you two ways to handle the database migrations, but first let's see what they have in common:

  • Scout APM
