Insight into Microsoft Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals - Chris Birmele (Microsoft Australia)
Author: Jeff Wharton Date Posted: 3/21/2007 11:12:02 PM
Despite having the words Visual Studio in the title, this new product is designed not just for software developers but also for Database Administrators.

Microsoft Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals (aka Data Dude) is a product designed to fit SQL Server development into the overall development lifecycle. However, it also provides a set of features that can be utilised by the operational DBA including data generation, schema comparison and simplified renaming of objects.

In this session Chris will provide an overview of Data Dude and how it ties in with Visual Studio Team System. Chris will also discuss various features such as managing database schemas offline, generating test data and testing database objects and provide demo's on how to import database definitions, refactor database schema, create test database & generate data and create and execute unit tests against test DB.
