I'm working with scrum methodology.

thus weekly schema updates are performed to the final product. However our customer is already populating the database. How can I update the database without dropping the tables?

How can I deal with these schema updates?

I am using DB First approach. this way I don't have Code First generated Migrations.

    @GertArnold: Yeah, I always get those two reversed. I don't use them much in ordinary conversation unless the specific distinction needs to be made. – Robert Harvey Aug 11 '16 at 21:07
