SQL Saturday in Verona!

This year I will speak at PASS SQL Saturday in Verona with a session based on database and source control management.

PASS SQLSaturday’s are free 1-day training events for SQL Server professionals that focus on local speakers, 
providing a variety of high-quality technical sessions, and making it all happen through the efforts of volunteers. 
Whether you’re attending a SQLSaturday or thinking about hosting your own, we think you’ll find it’s a 
great way to spend a Saturday – or any day. 
I would like to share my experience in using Visual Studio and Red-Gate tools for database source control and continuous integration with TFService. So, I’ll wait for you all!
This is the speaker list and these are the event details.
Stay Tuned!

IMHO, putting databases under source control management should be mandatory for every team.

In this post, I will try to explain how SQL Server Management Studio can cooperate with one of the third party tools that I’m currently using. This is the scenario:
