Database Testing on .Net Rocks!

I am honored to be the guest of a .Net Rocks! show on Database Testing! Richard Campbell, Carl Franklin, and I recorded the show last night and I had a lot of fun!

Richard and I commiserated about the "DBA condition" in the enterprise. Everyone shared "war stories" about projects. A good time was had by all.

I have to thank Chris Love - friend, tireless advocate of the Raleigh Developer Community, fellow Solid Quality Mentor, and (finally!) MVP - for setting this up. He was the gracious emcee of my recent presentation on Testing The Database to TriNUG (Triangle .Net User Group). Chris had heard a recent .Net Rocks! show where the discussion turned briefly to database testing, so he did the leg work to put Carl, Richard, and myself together for this show.

The show is scheduled for release 29 Jan 2008.

Hi Denis,

  Thanks for checking! Once again, the database guy was bumped for some "exciting" developer stuff... I'm used to it! Just kidding. ;)

  My first thought was they came to their senses during editing and deleted everything!

That was a good show, Richard is a riot. So you don't like C[A-Z][A-Z] types  ;-)

Thanks Denis!

  I had a blast - both those guys are lots of fun. :)

  I love RegEx, I just need to learn more about it. ;)

  Back in my developer days, the last thing I wanted to hear from a DBA was "I used to be a developer." So when I say that nowadays, I include "I don't consider myself an application developer anymore - I've been out of the game too long."

  But I still sling a little code every now and then.
