4107. Advanced Test-Driven
Development Using Visual Studio and C#
An emerging software engineering paradigm is test-driven
development, where tests are written early and testing is performed
continuously during the development process. Problems are discovered early and
corrected when they are found. This one-day course for developers introduces advanced
tools and methodologies of test-driven development that come with Visual Studio
2012 Ultimate, and illustrates the use of the techniques in the real-life
The course is practical, with many example programs and tests
written in C#, including a cumulative case study. The goal is to demonstrate
unit testing in real world .NET development projects including tiered
service-oriented applications. The student will receive a comprehensive set of
materials, including course notes and all the programming examples.

student should have a good knowledge of the .NET Framework and experience
programming in C# with Visual Studio. A basic course in Unit Testing, such as
the Object Innovations course 4106, Test-Driven Development Using Visual Studio
and C#, is recommended.
