Introduction




What is SSDT and what are its benefits




SSDT is a set of project templates and design surfaces that enable you to work with SQL Server content types in Visual Studio. You can use SSDT to create, edit, refactor, debug, deploy, and test various SQL Server objects, such as databases, tables, views, stored procedures, functions, triggers, indexes, constraints, data types, schemas, roles, users, etc.


Some of the benefits of using SSDT are:


  • You can use a familiar and integrated development environment (IDE) that supports IntelliSense, code completion, syntax highlighting, error checking, debugging, source control, etc.



  • You can use a declarative model-based approach that allows you to focus on what your database should be rather than how to implement it.



  • You can use schema compare and data compare tools that enable you to compare and synchronize different versions of your database or database project.



  • You can use continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) tools that automate your database development lifecycle (DLC) and align it with your application DLC.



  • You can use various extensions and plugins that enhance your productivity and functionality.
