comment database migration with data already in the database in production
We usually first made new and old data coexist, as much as possible: e.g. by filling new fields with data from old fields, or using synonyms for renamed objects. This allowed old production code to continue working in parallel with new code, and be a viable rollback option if new code starts to behave badly in production. After that, we completed the migration of the DB by dropping the unused old fields / tables.

comment Why using string[] args in all main methods?
@mouviciel: Obviously it is older than that (and probably older than Unix). The original question is tagged with c#, so it's [mostly] about Windows, and Windows's lineage starts with CP/M and does not cross with Unix.
