Course Description

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 cour se for developers explains the methodology of test - driven development and the use of the unit testing framework that comes with Visual Studio 2012 Professional Edition and higher. Visual Studio 2012 brings major changes to the unit testing framework, inclu ding a pluggable architecture that enables integration with third - party test frameworks. This topic is covered in an appendix. 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 doing unit testing in your .NET development projects. The student will receive a comprehensive set of materials, including course notes and all the programming examples.
Course Length: 1 Days
Course Tuition: $390 (US)


The student should have a basic knowledge of the .NET Framework and experience programming in C# with Visual Studio

C# Programming Uses & Stats

C# Programming is Used For:
Windows Applications Business Enterprise Applications Software Development Web Applications
Year Created
In Demand: 
C# along with Java is one of the top languages in demand for employers. 
.Net Library:
C# is integrated with the .Net Library thereby providing access to a vast archive of functionality and support. 
Team Friendly:
Multiple developers can easily work together on a project. 
Compiled Language:
The code that is stored on a public-facing server is in binary form. In other words, if your server gets hacked, the hacker doesn't automatically have access to your source code. 
C# roots are derived from C which means that the structure is transferable to other languages like Java, Objective C, PHP and C++. 

Steep Learning Curve:
For beginners, C# is not the easiest program to start with. 

Windows Application Exclusively:
Any .NET application needs a Windows platform to execute which means that companies using Linux servers would need Windows hosting to run a .Net application. 
Lack of Support for Older .NET:
Many enterprise organizations keep older operating systems because of the many problems that an upgrade can bring to the platform. Microsoft stops supporting older .NET frameworks after a few operating systems upgrades.

Complimentary Skills to have along with C# Programming

Since the .NET development ecosystem spans a wide array of capabilities and tools, it is difficult for .NET developers to know which .NET development skills and training to pursue in order to increase their marketability — and earning potential.  For that reason, learning supplemental languages such as Java, JavaScript, Python, C/C++, and others is expected in today’s competitive skill-set driven playing field.
