Using Automated Tests to Raise Code Quality

Abstract

Agile development practices can speed the development of applications and increase the rate at which you can deploy features for your customers. But unless you include a high level of test coverage in your code, these practices can also increase the number of bugs that are released. Databases can be particularly challenging for developers. This session examines database refactorings that introduce bugs, which are detected by automated tests. This approach allows developers to rapidly fix their code before a customer is affected.
