Making the Case for Unit Testing Database Code

by Dave Green

This course discusses the reasons why you would want to unit test databases, how to go about justifying this to the business, and how to start unit testing your databases.

What you'll learn

This course is aimed at technical leads, development or project managers who are looking after database development projects. It discusses both why database unit testing is a best practice, and how to get the business buy-in necessary to adopt it. This is a less technical course, which helps show why gaining business buy-in to new processes such as database unit testing is important, and can be a key enabler for adoption of best practices.
