  Given that the database, as the canonical repository of data, 
 is the most important part of many applications, why is it 
 that we don't write database unit tests? This talk promotes 
 the practice of implementing tests to directly test the 
 schema, storage, and functionality of databases.

 David E. Wheeler, Founder of Kineticode and Co-Founder of
