Introduction to Unit Testing​ Course Overview

Unit Testing is a level of software testing where individual units and components of the software are tested. The objective behind is to validate that every software unit performs as designed. Unit testing of software applications is done during application development. It isolates a section of code and verify its correctness and is usually performed by the developer. The Knowledge Academy’s Introduction to Unit Testing is designed to provide knowledge of concepts related to unit testing.

In this 1-day course, delegates will learn about the basics of unit testing. Delegates will gain a comprehensive knowledge of how to install NUnit and use the NUnit attributes in your code. This course will teach delegates how to use stubs for breaking dependencies. Delegates will be equipped with the knowledge of how to refactor design to be more testable.

During this training course, delegates will be introduced to isolation frameworks and usage of isolation frameworks. Delegates will learn how to create smart stubs with an isolation framework. They will also get a strong understanding of how to map out teste based on speed and type as well as map test classes to code under test. By attending this course, delegates will be able to build a test API for the application.
