Meet SSDT (SQL Server Data Tools), that comes with the SQL Database Project as an effective tool for integrating the database development with the software development lifecycle. Source control, version history, unit testing, and CI/CD: SSDT comes with an answer for all. The webinar is based on Eitan's real-world experience of implementing source control methodologies and CI/CD for SQL Server databases, using the Microsoft SSDT environment.

Before we can dive into SSDT, we must all be on the same page and understand the terms and methodologies used in the world of software development lifecycles. After all, with the power of SSDT, we the DBAs also become a part of this world!

In this session, the first of a 2-part series, we will learn: What is Git Source Control? What are CI/CD Pipelines? What are Unit Tests? These are all topics that each DBA must familiarize themselves with before integrating with the software development lifecycle.

We all know the database is a critical element of your software product. It’s high time for that fact to be reflected in your database development lifecycle!
