VSTS 2008 Database Edition GDR: Final First Impression

June 12, 2008 at 3:01 pm (Tools, Visual Studio) (, )


I finally finished my initial set of tests with the GDR CTP release. It’s great! They’ve solved so many of the deployment problems that we had been experiencing that it’s now hard to wait until they actually release the product. The bad news is, it completely changes my presentation at PASS. I’m still going to cover 2005/2008, but now I’m going to cover the GDR as well. I have one hour to hit both processes… That’s not going to be easy.

Anyway, they’ve broken everything down to either work locally only or as part of the larger project. It all gets checked into source control. It all comes back out. No manual processes (like checking in the .user file) necessary.

Thank you Gert Drapers, wherever you are.
