ssis for free?

Hi all. I want to study some ssis at home. Few questions. If I download SSDTBI 2012 at home, can i get this to work with SQL 2012 express? Or is it a requirement as a bare minimum to have SQL 2012 developer to be able to use SSIS? Thanks!

You will be able to create and develop SSIS packages with SSDT. You don't have to have Developer Edition installed to create the packages. If you wanted to test deploying and running from within SQL then you would need at least Developer Edition to do so.

so just to clarify, if i wanted to build an ssis package to test importing data locally to a sql DB on my machine i would definitely need SQL 2012 developer installed... this will not work with 2012 express.

I am not 100% but I would think you could specify the SQL Express database as the destination within SSDT and while validating the package it could push the data into the express database.
