Database management and use among multiple developers?

A couple of friends and I started developing an application and we are currently using a MySQL database. It's really just for practice, but we were wondering how would you go about creating a database and sharing the database with my other teammates so we can all use the same dummy data to test and develop with.

Should I execute mysqldump command and source the generated sql script? With that, how would I manage credentials?

Or should I just create a low-cost development database on some cloud platform to remove the dependency all together?

I can't help with your question but I'd recommend using #help as a tag so more people see it :)
