xUnit.net is a modern testing framework that is also used by the .NET development team. This course teaches you how to get started writing xUnit.net automated tests to verify your application is working as expected and help prevent costly bugs.
It's usually more expensive, time-consuming, and stressful to fix software bugs after they have been released to production environments. A good set of automated tests helps to verify that the application is working as expected and helps to prevent bugs from getting into production. In this course, Testing .NET Code with xUnit.net: Getting Started, you'll get an overview of automated testing to empower you to be able to start testing your own applications. First, you'll learn how to create xUnit.net automated tests that verify different types of results. Next, you'll explore how to customize and control test execution and categorization. Finally, you'll discover how to reduce the amount of test code you need to write by using the power of data-driven tests. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a foundational knowledge of xUnit.net that will help you to start writing your own automated tests.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name's Jason Roberts, and welcome to my course, Testing .NET Code with xUnit.net: Getting Started. I'm a freelance developer and author. It's always expensive, stressful, and time consuming to fix software bugs after they've been released to production. A good set of automated tests helps to verify that the application is working as expected and helps to prevent these bugs from making their way into production. In this course, you'll learn how to use the xUnit.net testing framework to create and run automated tests. Some of the major topics that we'll cover in this course include how to create a new xUnit.net test project, how to verify different types of results, how to customize and control how your tests get executed, how to group and execute subsets of tests using categories, and how to reduce the amount of test code you need to write by creating data‑driven tests. By the end of this course, you'll know how to use xUnit.net to create your own automated tests to help you find bugs before they get to production. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic C# programming. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to create automated tests with the Testing .NET Code with xUnit.net: Getting Started course, at Pluralsight.
