On Wednesday February 23rd, 2022, the Calgary Data User Group will be hosting our first user group session of the year, featuring Warwick Rudd. The topic is an introduction to Database Projects in Azure Data Studio, the cross-platform tool for connecting to SQL Server and Azure SQL Database.
Here is the abstract:
Database Projects are an important aspect in the Data Professional’s skills and knowledge. Azure Data Studio provides a fantastic starting place for data professionals to learn and implement Database Projects into their environments while working more effectively with less tooling.
In this demo heavy introductory session we will look at:
- The concepts of Database projects
- What you need to get started
- How you can incorporate this into your environment
- Build our first project together
This session is best for people just starting out their career as a data professional and looking at providing you with the skills and knowledge of where to start and how easily you can incorporate this into your day to day.
I have written about Azure Data Studio before, which you can read about here. What I like about it is that it is far easier to extend than SQL Server Management Studio, and of course it works on Windows, Linux, and macOS. Database Projects are an important part of the database developer’s toolbox, so it will be interesting to see how they can make the jump from Visual Studio to Azure Data Studio.
Please join us at 5pm Mountain Standard Time, two weeks from now. You can RSVP on Meetup to get the Teams link. I’ve heard Warwick present before and he has a good way of presenting.
If you can’t make it, we will be putting the recording of the event on our YouTube channel.
I look forward to seeing you then.
