While most developers are used to working with code in a version controlled environment, the variety of SQL components are sometimes forgotten, either because they are handled by other teams who aren't always grouped with developers, or because alternative tools are available that can bypass the traditional development experience.

But it's quite easy to keep your entire solution in Visual Studio, including the code components, as well as the data and analytics components.

To provide that integrated experience, the SQL team releases the "SQL Server Data Tools", a Visual Studio add-on which provides project templates to support Reporting Services, Integration Services, and Analysis Services. With these project templates, your release cycles can include the changes to: application code, database schema and objects, warehouse ETL processes, OLAP cube definitions, and the end user reports (pulling from the primary OLTP database or the OLAP cubes).

Historically MS has provided two releases of SQL Server Data Tools:
- SSDT : project templates for Reporting Services
- SSDTBI : project templates for Reporting Services, Integration Services, and Analysis Services
As of SQL 2016, they've been combined into a single release (SSDT). For the sake of this article, I'll only distinguish when it's relevant.

The SQL team releases SSDT based on the capabilities of the version of SQL. When a new version of SQL is released, as is a new version of SSDT to allow you to leverage the new features. Additionally, since SSDT is tied to the release of SQL, they are built for the CURRENTLY RELEASED version of Visual Studio - usually about a half version behind.

Just as SSDT enables the latest features of SQL, Visual Studio upgrades enable the latest developer features (either in the language, or in the framework). To enable use of the latest set of features across the board (both in language/framework, and also in SQL), it is important to stay up to date with the SSDT releases, since they will follow the VS releases.

Here is the list of versions (SQL and VS), as well as links to download SSDT/SSDTBI:

- SQL 2016 / VS 2015 - SSDT/SSDTBI - https://msdn.microsoft.com/mt186501
- SQL 2014 / VS 2013 - SSDT - https://msdn.microsoft.com/dn864412
- SQL 2014 / VS 2013 - SSDTBI - https://www.microsoft.com/download/details.aspx?id=42313
- SQL 2012 / VS 2012 - SSDT - https://msdn.microsoft.com/jj650015
- SQL 2012 / VS 2012 - SSDTBI - https://www.microsoft.com/download/details.aspx?id=36843

- SharePoint 2013 SP1 can only be installed onto Windows Server 2012 R2 by use of an SP2013+SP1 ISO, which has not yet been released (I will update this as appropriate). Slipstreaming SP1 onto 2013 RTM is not supported due to some of the changes in the prerequisites. More details in some of the references.
- Project Server 2013 SP1 does NOT include SharePoint 2013 SP1... update Project Server by first applying SPF/SPS 2013 SP1.

 2014/02/27 : Added download 'via' links using guids, just in case MS decides to redirect them to a new file at some point, and the new link needs to be tracked down. Also added some references.
 2014/02/28 : ISO images for SharePoint 2013 with SP1 are now available for download.

Saw this, wanted to keep the name/link/etc handy.

Adds links/pages to Central Admin to:
- Upload WSP files (stsadm -o addsolution)
- Download WSP files from the FARM DATABASE (ever loose your WSP? get 'em back without PowerShell scripts)
- Run SPDisposeCheck (checks for proper SharePoint API usage to avoid memory leaks)
