I am honored to present Visual Studio 2010 Database Projects: Top 7 features to make database development a breeze! to the SQL Server Innovators Guild tomorrow Tuesday, August 3rd 2010 at 6:00 PM.
In this session, I do my best attempt to convince database developers- that’s us – that database schema artifacts should be given the same level of importance and treatment of any other code artifact, and show how you could use Visual Studio projects to accomplish it. Here is the session’s abstract:
Visual Studio 2010 Database Projects: Top 7 features to make database development a breeze!
Most of us agree that the database is the most important component in a typical application, yet formal processes for versioning, testing and deployment of database objects as are often rudimentary or inexistent.
In this session Rafael explains how you can use Visual Studio database projects (aka data dude) to have better control over your database schema and reduce the risk and complexity related to the database development cycle. He will talk about the pros and cons he has experienced when using the tool in his projects and will highlight improvements made since the last version. This is a demo packed session where you will learn about schema versioning, testing, refactoring, deployment and more.
Most the content of this session remains relevant to the previous version of the tool- VSDB 2008 GDR2 - and, no, you don't need prior knowledge of Visual Studio to get the most out of this presentation!
This will be my second time speaking to this group - SQL Saturday #9 was my first one – and I am looking forward to having fun again. I hope to see you there!
