SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) is a very under used set of tools. Are you still writing alter scripts and sheepishly applying them hoping they won't mess up the Database. If so this is a great session for you. Come out and see what you can do with SSDT, it will make your life so much easier and give you the change audit trail your Database deserves.
I'll show you how to get your Database into a Visual Studio solution. How to make changes and check them in against a work item. Build to validate changes, Perform Static Code Analysis. We'll set up an Automated Build in TFS then create a Deployment. I'll show you how to use the publish profile to set all those options. How to set the version number on the Database and turn it into a Data-Tier Application. This is a practical Demo centric presentation.
