Test Driven Development in Visual Studio
Introduction to Test Driven Development in Visual Studio including a demonstration of the automated concurrent testing tool – NCrunch!
No matter what people have been saying recently, TDD is not dead. We will introduce TDD and demonstrate the benefits of practising it, while attempting to refute some of the arguments against it.
The three laws of Test Driven Development will be discussed, along with the famous Red-Green-Refactor cycle. Finally, we will detail some best practises of applying TDD within Visual Studio, including a demonstration of TDD with NCrunch - an automated concurrent testing tool.
