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 course for developers explains the methodology of test-driven development and the use of Microsoft’s MSTest unit testing framework that comes with Visual Studio 2022, including the free Community version.
This course is designed to run on .NET 6.0, which is the latest version of .NET Core and is the main implementation of .NET going forward. .NET Core is a package-based implementation that is cross-platform, running on Mac and Linux besides Windows. .NET Framework 4.x continues to be supported. Object Innovations course 4106 covers unit testing on .NET 4.x.
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: $490 (US)


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