Database code is application code, so test it!
Event Type: In-Person
Online Meeting URL: None
Another joint meeting with .NET User Group, sponsored by RedGate. Thank you RedGate for feeding the groups this month!
Database code is application code, and deserves to be treated as such. There, I've said it, now it's time to start living it. A longtime staple in application development is unit testing, but this practice has made little headway in SQL Server development. A better understanding of unit tests and some better tools will hopefully help change this. In this session we'll cover some of the basics of unit tests, write a simple unit testing procedure which can be used in nearly any SQL-compliant database, and learn about teo open-source unit testing frameworks for SQL Server. One of these frameworks (tSQLt) is sweet, bet RedGate's SQL Test adds an extra layer of goodness on top, which we'll also look into.
