Like most software patterns, few of them are gold standards that all teams should follow. Software development workflow is very dependent on context, in particular the social structure of the team and the other practices that the team follows.https://martinfowler.com/articles/branching-patterns.html
In thinking about these patterns, I find it useful to develop two main categories. One group looks at integration, how multiple developers combine their work into a coherent whole. The other looks at the path to production, using branching to help manage the route from an integrated code base to a product running in production.
The Microsoft JDBC Driver for SQL Server is a Type 4 JDBC driver that provides database connectivity through the standard JDBC application program interfaces (APIs) available in the Java Platform, Enterprise Editions. The Driver provides access to Microsoft SQL Server and Azure SQL Database from any Java application
Microsoft ADO.NET driver for SQL Server aka the Microsoft.Data.SqlClient GitHub repository.
Microsoft.Data.SqlClient is a data provider for Microsoft SQL Server and Azure SQL Database. Now in General Availability, it is a union of the two System.Data.SqlClient components which live independently in .NET Framework and .NET Core. Going forward, support for new SQL Server features will be implemented in Microsoft.Data.SqlClient
The Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC) is a digital computer produced for the Apollo program that was installed on board each Apollo command module (CM) and Apollo Lunar Module (LM). The AGC provided computation and electronic interfaces for guidance, navigation, and control of the spacecraft.
Great talk from Robert Wills:
Standalone SSIS DevOps Tools provide a set of executables to do SSIS CICD tasks. Without the dependency on the installation of Visual Studio or SSIS runtime, these executables can be easily integrated with any CICD platform. The executables provided are:
SSISBuild.exe: build SSIS projects in project deployment model or package deployment model.
SSISDeploy.exe: deploy ISPAC files to SSIS catalog, or DTSX files and their dependencies to file system.
Looks a little outdated at first…
Troubleshooting MDX queries can be a complex and time-consuming activity that requires the manual execution of many and repetitive tasks using different tools. Using Analysis Services Query Analyzer, you can forget all the complexities and drastically reduce the time spent to execute your analysis.https://ssasqueryanalyzer.github.io/
Analysis Services Query Analyzer (ASQA) is a complete FREE tool distributed under the MIT license and its source code is published on GitHub https://github.com/SSASQueryAnalyzer/SSASQueryAnalyzer
MDX Studio is a tool that was developed by Mosha Pasumansky, a former Analysis Services developer.https://www.sqlbi.com/tools/mdx-studio/
This tool is invaluable when writing a MDX query: you have a code formatting feature, an embedded system to analyze query performance and many other features for writing MDX queries.
Unfortunately, the source code is not publicly available and the project is currently no longer being updated by Mosha. Other contributors made an effort to keep the tool compatible with newer versions of Analysis Services and client connection libraries.

SQL Server Integration Services has an architecture that separates data movement and transformation from package control flow and management. There are two distinct engines that define this architecture and that can be automated and extended when programming Integration Services. The run-time engine implements the control flow and package management infrastructure that lets developers control the flow of execution and set options for logging, event handlers, and variables. The data flow engine is a specialized, high performance engine that is exclusively dedicated to extracting, transforming, and loading data. When programming Integration Services, you will be programming against these two engines.https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/integration-services/integration-services-programming-overview?view=sql-server-ver15
In this article, we will first illustrate how to create, save and execute SSIS packages using ManagedDTS in C#, then we will do a small comparison with Biml.https://www.sqlshack.com/biml-alternatives-building-ssis-packages-programmatically-using-manageddts/
