Deliver high-quality, bug-free applications by testing them with efficient and expressive functional programming
Starting with an introduction to the concepts behind test automation, you will learn how to set up your test environment for unit testing and how to execute your test suite within and outside of Visual Studio. Using different test frameworks as MSTest, NUnit, and xUnit, you will learn how to write tests in isolation, create test doubles with Foq, and write expressive assertions with FsUnit.
You will learn techniques used to mock database contexts, test stored procedures, use migrations to test databases in isolation, control a web browser with Canopy, and test web services with F# interactive. You will learn how these techniques apply to Agile principles and discover how testing fits into your project.
