SQL Server Development Tools - Best practice guidance
While most of the areas of the declarative essence of the Visual Studio Database Projects VSDB still holds true, it is deprecated and will be followed with the new development Tools of SQL Server Development Tools (SSDT).
Since the beginning of the VSDB guidance, many features were added to the toolset, allowing to develop, configure and deploy to various environments coverig as well on-premise as cloud based systems.
With the new guidance people will get the experience and best practices following the principles:
- Lead with Cloud
- Configure before Customize
- Solutions not Products
