Hey, You Got Your TDD in My SQL DB
by Jeff McKenzie
When should we test our data? From an application development perspective, a unit test against a database isn't a unit test at all. Which makes sense -- connected systems introduce overhead and dependency, both of which reduce stability and decrease productivity during test-driven development (TDD). But if we wait for integration testing, critical functionality can get missed. In this session, we will discuss strategies for filling the data testing gap, directly within a Microsoft SQL Server environment. If you do a lot of work in T-SQL but aren't familiar with TDD, you'll learn the why and how of test-first development. If you're accomplished with unit tests, but never tried them in your database, you'll learn how to apply familiar concepts like setup, mocking, and assertion. We'll spend most of our time walking through a solution based on a real-world project, specifically using the open source tSQLt database unit testing framework.
BFFS, Angular & .NET Core
by Wasim Hanna
Do you love ASP.Net Core but not a fan of Razor? Has your UX team complained how they can’t get your solution running on their Macs and can’t help you make your site pretty?
In this session, we'll walk you through an architecture of an application that uses Angular as it’s front end and ASP .NET Core as it’s RESTful backend and it’s all hosted in Azure. The entire site (front and back end) is under one Visual Studio solution file, and runs on Windows, and Macs allowing for cross platform & cross practice collaboration.
