Change Your Purr-spective on Testing Part 2: Database Testing

In a world of containerized everything, why not your database? No more pasting queries into config and crossing your fingers that they’ll work once your app is in dev. This talk will attempt to convince you to stop mocking your database layer and instead write tests that actually utilize it. You’ll learn about simple tools to manage dependencies, as well as easy implementation to get up and running with database testing. By the end you’ll have ideas, examples, and reasons to pursue a pattern of testing that will give you enormous confidence in your database interactions, long before your applications hit a deployed environment
