After a lot of hard work by the team, the CTP3 bits for SQL Server Developer Tools, Codename “Juneau” (SSDT) are now available for everyone to take for a spin. The SSDT install experience is based on Microsoft’s Web Platform Installer (Web PI) and lays down all the SSDT goodness you need, including the new LocalDB engine. I encourage everyone to take the bits for a spin and don’t hesitate to provide feedback to the team – either directly to me or via the SSDT Forum.
With the CTP3 bits now public I can continue my series on thinking about SSDT since the screenshots are no longer super-secret.
For convenience, here are some helpful links:
- Main SSDT page in Data Developer Center
- SSDT Download/Install Page
- SSDT Forum
- SSDT Team Blog
- SQL Server’s Connect Page
Enjoy the bits and we look forward to feedback!
