[ #23393 ]

Last night I attended my second Toronto Perl Mongers meeting. It was quite enjoyable. lamech gave a talk on his recently released Class::DBI::DataMigration framework.

At work we are presently updating a number of our reporting applications. We're taking this opportunity to reorganize our database schemas. As we have a data retention requirement on most of our data, we have to migrate from the old schema to the new. Knowing that I have a lot of data migration ahead of me, I really wanted to see lamech's talk.

The topic of database migration is quite a heavy topic, that's hard to put into words. Something that lamech pointed out at the beginning of his discussion, but he did a really good job (at least for me). I have a clear picture as to how Class::DBI::DataMigration works, and how we can use this tool in our upgrade process.
