SQLBits is coming to London on 29th – 31st March this year and there are some great sessions for database developers. You can register for the whole conference, sign up for the deep dive pre-conference sessions or attend the free community day at the weekend.
If you have an interest in the database tools in Visual Studio 2010 then it’s worth checking out what’s coming down the line with this pre-conference session:
This is your chance to hear the real story behind SSDT, directly from the man who built it. SQL Server Data Tools is effectively the 3rd version of the DataDude project, started in 2005 by Gert Drapers. SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) lets you develop, test, and maintain SQL Server and SQL Azure databases offline on your desktop. SSDT's modern T-SQL development environment supports declarative model-driven development whether working connected or offline, and integrates with Visual Studio's project and application lifecycle management tools to enable team development and source code control support for SQL Server and SQL Azure databases.
This master class will get you started using SSDT; provides you with the architectural ins and outs of schema management using SSDT; team oriented database development and leveraging the command line and programmatic interfaces that accompany SSDT for importing, comparing and deploying database schemas. Learn it from the DataDude himself.
