  • Blog Post: Adding SQL Management Studio to the VS 2010 RC

    While it’s very convenient to have SQL 2008 Express installed along with Visual Studio 2010, it’s unfortunate that it’s missing the Express version of SQL Management Studio .

  • Blog Post: Using Windows Search to Index your Source Code

    I really like having Windows Search integrated into the Start Menu in Windows. It’s a handy way to find documents, programs and even control panel links.

  • Blog Post: SQL Server Integration Services and Team Build

    I recently came across a helpful post on Jim Morris' IDeveloper blog . He describes how to get your SSIS packages "building" in MSBuild (allowing them to be built by Team Build as well). The problem stems from the fact that Team Build uses MSBuild but SSIS projects are not written in MSBuild...
