October Community Recap

📢 New Liquibase University Course: Common Liquibase Design Patterns


This course reviews five real-world Liquibase design patterns, including how to address database drift, utilize property substitution in a Liquibase project, and how Liquibase is used in a state, migration, or hybrid approach for database deployments.
