Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 9th and 10th, 2010
CodeX Enterprises LLC
My 25 years in the industry have been largely spent in consulting, helping clients deliver large business solutions, mostly using .NET technologies, SQL Server, SSAS and SSRS. My specialty is in the SQL space, in particular data modeling and BI, although I've been very involved with application frameworks and architecture as well.
There are many philosophies on how to structure SQL source control in an organization in a way that is a) flexible, b) provides the kind of "safety" we expect from source control products for non-SQL developers and c) ties into the overall build process as transparently as possible. This talk will demo different strategies and discuss some of the real problems people experience when trying to make SQL source control (and build management in general) work for them. We’ll take a look at some options that exist if you have just SSMS available, or Visual Studio 2010 + TFS, plus we’ll look at other third party products that are designed to help streamline the overall development process, while still giving SQL developers their familiar experiences and meeting their daily needs when interacting with databases.
