VSTS for Database Professionals

Michael Hunter (a.k.a The Braidy Tester) has posted another useful article posing the question: "Do you even need to test your product?"

After covering The Five Easy Steps of Unit Testing for Database Professionals its interesting to see some expanded ideas on why you might choose not to test an application. Some of these things are obvious. But with an over-eager developer/tester on the team, it could be easy to end up with a lot of unnecessary tests being made and run.

Remember to test the things that matter to customers/consumers of the app, and things that other apps are dependant on. Make sure you react to test results "otherwise it is entertainment" James Bullock says.
