SSIS Tasks and Components

Todd McDermid (a frequent poster on the MSDN SSIS forums, and creator of the Kimball SCD component) and I have started a new project on CodePlex along with Todd McDermid, the SSIS Community Tasks and Components (ssisCTC) project. This project is intended to be a umbrella project for custom SSIS tasks and components that are released as open source, as well as provide a listing of other open components for SSIS. I’ve published the Batch Destination component that I created to the site, and intend to add some more over the coming months.

Why set up a community project around this? Primarily, because I’ve found that many single person projects get one release, and then are never touched again. Having multiple people involved helps insure that if one person gets busy, or moves on to other interests, there are still people around to maintain and enhance what’s been put out there. So, if you are interested in joining or contributing, please let me know, or get in touch with use through the CodePlex site. Also, if you have or know of a freely available SSIS component or task, let us know, and we’ll be happy to add it to the list.
