Implementing a CI/CD pipeline with SQL database projects and SQL Server containers

The Docker democratization started long ago with developers. Containerization is very popular for stateless applications but nowadays databases are also becoming an important part of the customer CI/CD pipeline. Fortunately, Microsoft kept up by providing the support for MSSQL databases on Docker regardless the underlying operating system (Windows and Linux).

But implementing a CI/CD pipeline with SQL Server raises a lot of considerations from both Devs and Ops.
