Git for the Data Professional
This is a full day pre-con for DBAs, database developers, and application developers who want to get started with storing their database schema in git. We will cover using git from the command line and with Visual Studio. We will be using Github as our central repository, but will discuss other cloud and on premises options for the primary repository. Our example application will be an ASP.NET MVC application and SQL Database whose schema will be managed by SSDT.
Participants will be expected to have a laptop with Visual Studio 2017 (Community or Professional Edition), the latest Cumulative Update for SQL Server 2016, Git for Windows and TortoiseGit. A Github URL for the example application will be provided in advance. Attendees will be expected to have cloned the repo, compiled the application, and run it locally.
