  • Database development with SSDT and Azure

    One of the new things in the development tool to SQL server 2012 (SSDT) is the database project as shown in the picture below. Before 2012 it was a part of visual studio, but now you can get it for free in the data tools. I’m guessing that that is one of the reasons for… Continue reading
