Last week at the SQL PASS SUMMIT 2011 in Seattle, Ted Kummert announced during his keynote that the final name of SQL Server Developers Tools code-named “Juneau” will be SQL Server Data Tools or SSDT for short. Additionally, the final name for SQL Server “Denali” will be SQL Server 2012.
Besides the final name there were other important data points shared at the PASS Summit regarding SSDT:
For more information, check out the slides from our PASS Summit breakout session Database Development with SQL Server Data Tools Code-Named “Project Juneau” [AD-213-M].
So when can you get it?
Well you have to wait till SQL Server 2012 is released. The good news is that you can check out CTP3 today and we will provide updated bits in Q4 of CY2011 for you to evaluate. Watch the SSDT MSDN forum and the team blog for more details in the coming weeks.
