How-to: Use Visual Studio SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) -Friday, May 20, 2016
This article describes the process of developing the entire Data Tier in Visual Studio SQL Server Data tools (SSDT.)

SSDT is a technology that brings the data tier in-line with C# projects, and both can be developed, versioned and released in the same manner.
