An emerging software engineering paradigm is test-driven development, where tests are written early and testing is performed continuously during the development process. Problems are discovered early and corrected when they are found. This one-day course for developers explains the methodology of test-driven development and the use of NUnit in supporting test-driven development on Microsoft .NET.
The course is practical, with many example programs and tests written in C#, including a cumulative case study. The goal is to quickly bring you up to speed in using NUnit in your .NET development projects. The student will receive a comprehensive set of materials, including course notes and all the programming examples.
- Understand the principles of test-driven development
- Acquire fluency in developing tests using the NUnit framework
- Efficiently exercise tests suites using both GUI and command-line tools
Duration: 1 day. There is enough material, including five labs, to run the course over a somewhat longer duration if desired. The instructor guide contains suggestions for pacing.
