Therefore, part of the development process must be to undertake a series of testing processes to validate the development of the product to prove that it will work correctly when in use.

The author of this book proposes a methodology that might appear to be at odds with traditional ideas; he

Very interesting info and approach to test-driven database development. A full solution to Db TDD is supplied. Definately worth reading and understanding the author's view on this topic, which is so often negleted in projects, mostly due to the lack of knowledge and experience in database testing.

Combining TDD and databases is an idea find great. After solving that problem with simple tools like DbUp I hoped to find some good advice on how to improve my solution. Unfortunately, the book falls short in nearly every way.

The TDD part is written in a way a novice can’t understand what is going on and a more advanced practitioner finds nothing new. Combined with his own vocabulary it makes TDD unnecessarily complex and hard to follow.

The part on databases is even worse. Here the own (inconsis

“A great tide of civilization governs how humans do things. When that tide goes out, we centralize, establish command and control structures, and attempt to find efficiencies in large batches and long queues. When the water starts to come back in, we break down those structures, start to drive control down into the hands of 'common' folk, and attempt to find efficiencies in the quick decisions that get made by people closest to the problem. The tide is coming back in and will probably continue to ebb that direction for the lifespan of anyone alive at the time of this writing.” 0 likes
