Ensure your code is up-to-par by performing a unit test, verifying your code works as expected using a small piece of code that exercises a focused area of functionality. You can perform unit testing using Visual Studio 2015. Join Walt Ritscher as he guides you through the process of creating and running unit tests.

- [Voiceover] Welcome to my Visual Studio 2015 Unit Tests course. Join me as I explore the unit test integrations available in Visual Studio. I'll start the course by building a simple unit testing framework. This allows us to explore the basic principles of testing frameworks and see how our primitive version compares to the commercial offerings that we'll use later in the course. You'll explore three of the popular test frameworks, MSTest, NUnit, and XUnit.net. I'll show you ow to create unit tests with each framework, compare their features, and show how each one is fully integrated into the Visual Studio IDE.
Plus I have a lot of tips and information about using Test Explorer, the main IDE tool for running tests and investigating the test results. I'll look at some popular features like CodeLens and Code Coverage too. Also on the agenda is a look at how to debug unit tests and how to make parameterized tests. That's the topics for this course. If you're ready, let's get started.
- Examining types of frameworks
