HowTo: Setup SSIS via TeamCity – fixing problems

Some time ago I have shown how to configure automatic build of SSIS projects (SQL Server Integration Services). Unfortunately they require full version of Visual Studio installed on a build machine as it’s an overwhelming plugin (not only a toolset), what potentially could hit me back. And well, of course it failed and hit me after 30 days! Turned out Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition expired and was refusing to cooperate more, producing this nice error log: Read more →

HowTo: Setup SSIS project to build via TeamCity

It should be simple, it should be quick. And as usual it turned out to be hard, painful and forced me to install Visual Studio 2017 back on a build machine. I’ve cried a lot that hour.

TeamCity – advanced application version patcher

I am a really big fan of JetBrain’s TeamCity product. I use it a lot at work and also for my hobby projects.
