Making the SQL developer one of the family with Visual Studio Team System
Microsoft Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals has been with us for a couple of years now. The new GDR release has some significant changes from the previous versions. In this session I will look at how VSTS for the first time makes the database developer a first class citizen in the Microsoft development family, particulary highlighting the new features in the GDR release.
I aim to cover the complete development life cycle using this tool, addressing issues such as schema management, source control, testing, data generation and deployment.
