Unit Testing your Database Changes

Damian meets with Hamish Watson at the MVP Summit to talk about testing your database changes. Unit testing is vital in a good process but tests don't often extend to the database. Can it be done at all? And do DBAs have to learn a new language? Hamish shows us two tools that can help you write database tests, in TSQL, and run them as part of your CI/CD pipeline.
