After reading an excellent SQLBlog post by Jamie Thompson (link) and running through a quick tutorial on Pluralsight by Robert Cain (link), I am a changed man.

I've only developed a handful of databases from scratch but I just could not stand working through SSMS and managing a bunch of *.sql files. Not to mention how frustrating it was having to make sure everything appeared in the db-creation script in order of dependency. Don't get me started on Refactoring and Unit Testing...

Anyone else have some sources for a beginner?

A changed man? Wow! :-)
Glad you found my article useful anyway.

Unfortunately, in my experience, there aren't too many resources out there. Gert Drapers' blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/gertd/) is good and I've gotten a lot of help from the dedicated forum (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vstsdb/threads)

Hope that helps.
