In this episode, Olivier Wulveryck, Senior Consultant at consulting company OCTO Technology, and Scott discuss all things schema contracts. The episode will probably leave you with more questions than answers at this point as the concept/practice is still emerging. But you will get a good sense for how to do it right - and how not to do it too! - from the conversation.
