It's usually more expensive, time-consuming, and stressful to fix software bugs after they have been released to production environments. A good set of automated tests helps to verify that the application is working as expected, and helps to prevent bugs from getting into production. In this course, Testing .NET Core Code with xUnit.net: Getting Started, you'll cover an overview of automated testing that you'll be able to utilize in practice. First, you'll learn how to create xUnit.net automated tests that verify different types of results. Next, you'll explore how to customize and control test execution and categorization. Finally, you'll discover how to reduce the amount of test code needed with data-driven tests. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a foundational knowledge of xUnit.net that will help you to start writing your own automated tests.
