Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you're a tester or work in a light-programming capacity, then this comprehensive book will get you up to speed on Microsoft's .NET technologies. Unlike other books, this one focuses solely on applied programming techniques for testers. You will learn how to write simple automated tests, then test tools and utilities. You will also learn about the important concepts driving modern programming today, like multi-tier applications and Object Oriented Programming. So whether you're an experienced programmer unfamiliar with testing concepts, or you're an experienced tester not versed in VB .NET and C#, the included real-world tips and example code will help you start your projects. Also included are review questions and hands-on exercises to help you retain knowledge. Additionally, the book features examples and quick language tutorials for both C# and VB .NET. As the testing market continues to improve as more businesses adopt .NET technologies, this book will equip you to assess software robustness and performance.
