Managing Database Changes with Visual Studio and SSDT with Jim Wooley

As systems grow and evolve, we need tools to help manage these changes, including tracking changes to the database schemas, producing scripts to synchronize the changes between servers, and refactoring the corresponding application code based on the new structures. You'll see how you can use tools in Visual Studio and the new SQL Server Database Tools to help manage these changes better.


We will be meeting in Room 401 of Building 100 at Gwinnett Tech. If the school needs to move us to a different room, I'll send out an email from the Meetup list on the day of the meeting.

    This topic was a little more than what I use in my current work environment, but it was very informative. Jim was very enthusiastic about the topic and I felt I took away some new approaches in how I develop and how the database admin and assist in managing my data. Great presentation!!!

    It was an excellent presentation. I definitively will be using SSDT in my future development efforts. The TFS overview of branching merge from trunk was good too.
