This workshop is for both beginners and practitioners of automated testing. Through multiple hands-on programming exercises, you’ll learn about unit testing, test-driven development, test doubles, interaction-based testing, state-based testing, equivalence classes, and property-based testing.
The workshop consists of about 45% hands-on exercises, 25% demos, and 30% presentations. Exercises are in C# on .NET Core, although you can do some of the exercises in any language you prefer.
Knowledge of C# is assumed.
You should bring a machine with a Git client and a C# .NET Core development environment.
Mark Seemann helps programmers make code easier to maintain. His professional interests include functional programming, object–oriented development, software architecture, as well as software development in general. Apart from writing a book about Dependency Injection he has also created several Pluralsight courses, and written numerous articles and blog posts about programming. Originally poised to become a rock star or (failing that) graphic novelist (in the European tradition) he one day found himself with insufficient talent for either, a master's degree in Economics, and a desire for working with computers. He has been doing the latter intermittently since 1995. When not working with software or spending time with his family, Mark enjoys reading, listening to and playing music, as well as preparing or consuming gourmet food and wine.
