I bet you didn’t know you could do a LOT of your database activities from within Visual Studio? What, you did? Maybe… but did you know you can use Team Foundation Server with it too? Yeah! Source control, work item tracking, build, and more. All of this in addition to the comparison tools, data generation, testing (YES, TESTING!!), deployment, and T-SQL analysis you get from Visual Studio. Excited now right? It’s super handy if you do database development, and no it doesn’t HAVE to be SQL Server either. We opened it up to support other database engines too. So why keep bouncing over to SSMS, TOAD or use Redgate tools? Use the tool you already know and love. Notion Solutions is doing a free set of training webcasts to ramp you up on what you can leverage to make your lives easier when it comes to your db development. Check it out!
Supporting Database Development and Deployment with Visual Studio 2010 and TFS
Software development is more than just writing application code. Working with a database is also an important part of most projects. The Visual Studio 2010 Premium allows creating database projects for working with SQL Server, much like the projects used for Windows applications. The tool also includes project types for creating applications that use the SQL CLR. And to help developers create databases and the code that uses them, Visual Studio Premium includes visual designers for tables, queries, views, and other aspects of database development. Like any other projects, these database projects can use the source code control and build management functions provided by TFS. For instance, a database project can help manage changes to a database’s schema by putting it under version control. Visual Studio Premium also provides support for tracking dependencies between database objects, refactoring database objects, database deployment, and other aspects of database change management. Also, new in Visual Studio 2010 Premium is a provider model that supports Oracle and DB2 databases. Attend this informative Webcast to learn how you can take advantage of Visual Studio 2010 Premium to manage your database development efforts.
