I just couldn't believe Datadude was an actual name!


I know, I can't believe it, either. I got lucky by guessing. Part of the guess was taking a chance that Datadude was one of the real code names.

Hi all,
Just to be clear guys. "Datadude" is one of the colloquial names that I mentioned in the question. its not a formal name, nor even a codename, its just what the feature set has invariably come to be known as down the years.

cheers

I recognised some of the names, was slightly suspicious of the one including 2005 but reckoned that maybe the 2005 stuff just got an upgrade to interface to the 2010 team server, thought datadude was probably the culprit but also thought that DataSmith was someone else's (not MS) trading name; both of those couldn't be right, so I used MSDN search and immediately discovered hordes of people in the support forums referring to the tools as datadude and then knew it was the other.

If I had to get this one wrong at least I picked the most popular wrong answer. :)
What is it with the sexism at Microsoft assuming that SQL work is a "man's job".

Where is the "DataDudette" version? LOL

Good question. I was surprised that Data Dude wasn't correct.

Thanks for the interesting question.

I'm surprised at the number of people that thought DataDude was the name that hadn't been used, that is what I had heard it called the most. (And I am sure Microsoft referred to it as that in one of their sales/marketing events I attended long ago.)

Ditto. When DataDude was officially released as "Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Database Professionals", I simply kept refering to it as DataDude. There's no way I would ever use that incredibly long name.

I found this question to be too tricky to answer.

Thanks.
