Join us in October as local speaker Ken Stuber gives a double feature! Presentations will be about Database Development with SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), and implementing Continuous Integration with SSDT. 

Databases are code. As such, they should be managed like code. Techniques such as Declarative Database Development, Unit Testing, Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment are all within reach with the tools Microsoft and other vendors have available. These two hours will be spent exploring the concepts and tools for Database Development and for Continuous Integration and deep diving into a few of the tools including SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), Visual Studio Online, and Jenkins.
