Developing in Containers using Visual Studio Code (T-SQL Tuesday #140)

T-SQL Tuesday logo.

This month’s T-SQL Tuesday is hosted by Anthony Nocentino (@nocentino). He wants to know what we’ve been up to with containers. Perfect timing, because I have just spent the last couple of weeks learning how to develop in containers using Visual Studio Code! I was planning to write this for myself anyway, but perhaps it can be interesting for others as well 🤓

What is the use case?

One of my clients are using dbt (Data Build Tool) for their data transformations. In short, this means that developers write data transformations in SQL as SELECT statements. All SQL code can be combined with Jinja templates. Inside of these Jinja templates, developers can reference other tables, use control logic, or define common SQL code snippets as reusable macros. Dbt then compiles the SQL+Jinja code into pure SQL.
