Learn how to apply a test-driven development process by building ready C# 7 and .NET Core applications.About This Book
This book is for .NET developers who would like to build efficient applications by implementing principles of test-driven development. C# programming and working knowledge of VS is assumed.What You Will Learn
This book guides developers to create robust, production-ready C# 7 and .NET Core applications through the practice of test-driven development process.
In C# and .NET Core Test-Driven Development, you will learn the different stages of the TDD life cycle, basics of TDD, best practices, and anti-patterns. It will teach you how to create an ASP.NET Core MVC sample application, write testable code with SOLID principles and set up a dependency injection for your sample application. Next, you will learn the xUnit testing framework and learn how to use its attributes and assertions. You'll see how to create data-driven unit tests and mock dependencies in your code. You will understand the difference between running and debugging your tests on .NET Core on LINUX versus Windows and Visual Studio. As you move forward, you will be able to create a healthy continuous integration process for your sample application using GitHub, TeamCity, Cake, and Microsoft VSTS.
By the end of this book, you will have learned how to write clean and robust code through the effective practice of TDD, set up CI build steps to test and build applications as well as how to package application for deployment on NuGet.Style and approach
The book explores the concepts of test driven development in depth so readers can apply these proven techniques to build sophisticated software with C# and .NET.
