If you write code to SQL Server then you might be interested in this: I have written a tSQLt tdd training course which has helped over 500 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.

Where did january go?

I have been pretty busy over january and the first half of feburary and haven’t had time to write any blogs, I did have an article on simple talk published:


A couple of exciting things did happen, firstly I was allowed back into the friends of redgate programme - I like the redgate guys and am pleased to be back! Secondly I have been accepted into the Microsoft ALM Ranger programme which means I can help deliver some tooling and documentation as part of a team instead of beavering away by myself. I am particularly pleased about the ALM Rangers as I have been thinking about who is actually interested in better development practices and automated deployments for SQL Server and whereas I did originally think it would be SQL developers, I feel that the majority of SQL devs and especially DBA’s are more focused on other things than improving their working practices so this is hopefully a way to help more people write and deploy code for SQL Server and databases in general :)

If you haven’t heard of the ALM Rangers before, here are the details:


My introduction:


Finally my thanks really does go out to Danny Crone (http://www.nfocussoftwaretesting.com/page.aspx/Danny-Crone) who agreed to nominate me.

Congrats on being added to the ALM Ranger program. Your tSQLt Test Runner project is seriously useful and makes integrating tSQLt into ALM in general. I’ve looked at the ALM Ranger Program before, always liked the look of it.
