Advanced TDD
in C#

This course follows on from our TDD Fundamentals in C# course, and covers more advanced topics, helping developers to write more maintainable tests and to apply the TDD practices to existing code.

Learning Outcomes

  • How to create and use test data builders
  • How to do TDD on existing code
  •  - How to locate seams in existing code
     - How to break apart dependencies to allow you to introduce test doubles
  • Advanced stubbing/mocking techniques, and when to use them

We usually use the following tools to teach this course:

  • Visual Studio
  • NUnit
  • NSubstitute
  • ReSharper

If we run the course at one of our training venues then we provide all the required tools and machines. If we run the course at a customer venue then the customer will need to ensure that there is one machine for every two delegates and that Visual Studio has been installed on those machines. Please contact us if you have any questions about this.

This course has a prerequisite of all delegates having done the TDD Fundamentals course or having real-world experience doing TDD in practice.
