Visual Studio Team System for Database Professionals CTP 5 Out

, 2006-08-23

If you aren't aware, the Visual Studio Team System for Database

Professionals CTP 5 is available for download. It's a significantly

larger install package than CTP4, going from 30 MB to 120 MB.

Team System for Database Professionals CTP 5 Download

As with the other CTPs, you have to uninstall any previous Team System

for Database Professionals install before installing CTP 5. When you

run the downloaded .exe, it'll tell you that and then prompt you for a

location to extract the .exe file to.

If you have projects from previous versions, they won't work with this latest CTP. From the Readme.doc that extracts:

2.2.2.   Compatibility with prior CTPs

If you have database projects that you created using a prior CTP of

Team Edition for Database Professionals, you cannot open them using

CTP5. To implement new features, some breaking changes were required in

the file formats for database projects, data generation plans, and

database unit tests.

Also, it will install a default instance of SQL Server

Express if you don't already have one installed. There isn't an option

in the installer to not install it.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
