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.
In this session, the second of a 2-part series, we will cover the rich tools, features, and methodologies in SSDT that allow DBAs to implement a continuous database development lifecycle. We will also learn about solutions to common fears and objections coming from naysayers, common problems while starting with SSDT for the first time, and various problematic edge cases and how to solve them.
SSDT in general (SQL Server Data Tools), and the SQL Database Project specifically, are very effective tools for integrating the database development with the software development lifecycle. Source control, version history, unit testing, and CI/CD – SSDT has it all – and it’s completely free!
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!
