If you write code to SQL Server then you might be interested in this: at the end of 2017 I wrote a tSQLt tdd training course which has helped over 300 people learn both tSQLt and how to apply TDD practices to their SQL Server T-SQL development, you can join the course at https://courses.agilesql.club. The course is free if you are happy to wait 10 weeks to complete it, with 1 lesson being made available per week - if you are in more of a hurry or you would like to help support the project you can purchase the course which makes it instantly available to you.

Putting the ORM debate to bed

Hopefully this should put the ORM debate to bed, either use an ORM or don’t but please don’t access tables directly…

Accessing tables directly is a Sad Face using procs is a Happy Face

There are obviously reasons behind all of this but if you follow this golden rule you will have a happy DBA and user base.
