The Art of Unit Testing, Second Edition guides you step-by-step from writing your first simple tests to developing robust test sets that are maintainable, readable, and trustworthy. You’ll master the foundational ideas and quickly move to high-value subjects like mocks, stubs, and isolation, including frameworks such as Moq, FakeItEasy, and Typemock Isolator. You’ll explore test patterns and organization, working with legacy code and even “untestable” code. Along the way, you’ll learn about integration testing and techniques and tools for testing databases and other technologies.  

You know you should be unit testing, so why aren’t you doing it? If you’re new to unit testing, if you find unit testing tedious, or if you’re just not getting enough payoff for the effort you put into it, keep listening. The examples in the audiobook use C# but will benefit anyone using a statically typed language such as Java or C++.  

What’s inside:

  • Create readable, maintainable, trustworthy tests 
  • Fakes, stubs, mock objects, and isolation (mocking) frameworks 
  • Simple dependency injection techniques 
  • Refactoring legacy code  

Roy Osherove has been coding for more than 15 years, and he consults and trains teams worldwide on the gentle art of unit testing and test-driven development.
