In the second part of the session an additional layer gets introduced which transforms parts of components into testable code fragments. Read more.

This is largely because databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL don't necessarily require a full-time DBA to administer. It's become more important for developers at smaller companies to have some basic knowledge of how to keep their database happy. Read more.
