Testing Times for the Team

Unit testing has been much slower to catch on in the database world than amongst application code developers, but the times they are a-changing and there has been much talk in recent years about unit-testing database code and even questions about agile development practices amongst database professionals.  How does this work in practice though?  What happens when we have a team developing using a variety of technologies - T-SQL, .Net, SSIS  for example?  How can we handle situations where we need to work with different versions, named and default instances of SQL Server, different drive configurations?  Can it all be made to work?  This session looks at some of these challenges and proposes some possible ways to address them.  No doubt you've got your own experiences to share as well.
