Microsoft is holding a
technical chat session with the product group responsible for Visual Studio
Team Edition for Database Professionals. This is a great opportunity to find out
the latest developments and ideas that Microsoft have on this new product and
influence changes for the future.
Today marks the
release of CTP6 of Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals.
I'm pretty excited to see the development of this Visual Studio product.
Finally database developers will be able to work like other programmers. Extreme
Programming methods will be useful. Through Visual Studio projects and source
control more developers will be able to work on a single database.
If you haven't heard about
VSTS for DB Pros, its a suite of new tools for database developers designed
at enhancing team productivity and code reliability. Included are tools for:
Schema and Data Comparison
Enhanced T-SQL Editor
Combined with Team Foundation Server you have capabilities for bug tracking
and source control.
