SSIS developers who already know basic Biml and have created a staging solution.
Is your Biml solution starting to remind you of a bowl of tangled spaghetti code? Good! That means you’re solving real problems while saving a lot of time. The next step is to make sure that your solution doesn’t grow too complex and confusing – you don’t want to waste all that saved time on future maintenance!
Attend this session for an overview of Biml best practices and coding techniques. Learn how to centralize and reuse code with include files and the CallBimlScript method. Make your code easier to read and write by utilizing LINQ (Language-Integrated Queries). Share code between files by using Annotations and ObjectTags. And finally, if standard Biml is not enough to solve your problems, you can create your own C# helper classes and extension methods to implement custom logic.
Start improving your code today and level up your Biml in no time!
Why I Want to Present This Session:
It’s very easy to create a Biml solution to save time on SSIS development, and the real magic happens when you start using BimlScript. But what if you don’t have a programming background? It can be pretty frustrating trying to figure out how to accomplish certain tasks if you don’t even know what to search for. (We’ve all been there!) My goal is to present tips and tricks that will make it easier for new Biml developers without a programming background to create readable and reusable Biml solutions.
