Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll learn to write effective unit tests for an existing ASP.NET e-commerce application. You’ll start by analyzing where unit tests can be implemented, then write and run those tests using Visual Studio and best practices. You’ll refactor those tests to the Builder pattern in order to reduce test code and improve maintainability. Finally, you’ll set up integration tests for code that rely on external dependencies, and use your tests to guide the creation of new functionality for your app.
