Learn from me about SSDT in London, February 2015

Microsoft released SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) along with SQL Server 2012 in the Spring of 2012. Since then I’ve noticed an upward tick in both the number of organisations that are using SSDT and the number of questions that are getting asked about it on forums. There is some confusion about what SSDT actually is (Microsoft hasn’t helped there), why people should be using SSDT and, most importantly, how to make best use of it. If you want to know more then a good place to start is my blog series 10 days of SSDT or Get to Know SQL Server 2012's SQL Server Data Tools on

Its clear that people want to learn more about SSDT so if those articles don’t satiate you know that I have joined forces with Technitrain to offer a 2–day training course, in London, in February 2015 called Introduction to SQL Server Data Tools



The course will cover:

Day 1

  • SSDT Positioning
  • IDE Tour
  • Connected Database Development
  • Declarative, offline, database development
  • Publishing
  • Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment

Day 2

  • Data Publishing
  • Refactoring
  • Database unit testing
  • References and composite projects
  • Database Drift
  • Code analysis

If this sounds like your bag then please sign up on the Technitrain website. I ran this course for Technitrain in March 2014 after which 100% rated the trainer and the course content as outstanding. 100% also rated the course overall as outstanding.
