This year’s DOAG conference and exhibition really embraces the topic of automated Self-Testing from a developer’s perspective – and I am so glad about that! Too long practices like TDD have been a niche topic in the database world, but times are changing.

To help people interested in automated self-testing practices, I compiled a list of all talks centered around that topic in order of their appearance (talks by utPLSQL maintainers get a little highlight, though. Yes, I’m biased and it’s my list).

The list is highly subjective, there are several presenters I don’t know and while I read through a very large amount of abstracts it is absolutely possible I missed something.

If so, don’t hesitate to reach out to me so I can add the talk to the list or correct the very short description.

(Make sure to revisit this post once in a while for it is a “living” document)
