Sanjay Nagamangalam looks at different tools you can use to connect to SQL Server:

  • New SQL command line tools for Linux: We’ve created Linux-native versions of your favorite SQL command line tools such as sqlcmdand bcp and sqlpackage and also added the new mssql-conf tool that lets you configure various properties for the SQL Server instance on Linux (e.g., SA password, TCP port and collation).

They also have a plugin for Visual Studio Code, which can be helpful if you’re running on Linux.
