BimlExpress 2017 is finally here! In this session, Cathrine will take you through the exciting new features, like expanded Biml preview, global include files, and support for SSIS annotations.

She also covers some of the most important changes to the Biml API, like the updated CallBimlScript, the new MakeSsisSafe extension method for strings and the flat file extension method for generating table columns from flat file columns.

Hi all, I'm becoming an enthusiastic BIML developer but facing regular issues when using it in VS 2015. Is there any insight when BIML Express will become available for VS 2017? Greetings

I am trying to imbed a "script component" for the packages that I am generating inside a for loop. It looks like the script project need to be outside of the packages collection. How can I write a biml that would reference the script project. I need the columns of the pipe defined by biml.
