[BOX_START]Please repeat the stuff and answer the following questions by mail:
1. What are Unit Tests?
2. Why and when should I use them?
3. How do I write Unit Tests?
We will continue with the 5th lesson at Wednesday, the 10th of November 2010.[BOX_STOP]
In this lesson I want to finish the sample solution. For me a programming task is only finished, if all necessary Unit Tests are written and if those tests finish successfully!
Please make sure, that you have the latest version of
on your laptop. (checkout with TortoiseSVN!)
tomorrow we will do some live coding. You should watch the NerdDinner video, if you haven’t done that already.
This time, no special preparation is required.
Please make sure that:
- Visual Studio 2010 is running
- MSSQL is running, too
- you have ASP.NET MVC 2 on your machine (use the Web Platform Installer)
Download the codes from http://code.google.com/p/lecture-hoppe/ .
In this lesson I want to concentrate on the server side of our application. As you already know, web applications are a very big topic. This time you will not need a lot of preparation, if you are already familiar with a scripting language like PHP or even a web application framework like Ruby On Rails.
But it is generally a very good idea to get in contact with ASP.NET MVC now! I can recommend the famous reference implementation “NerdDinner”.
In the next time am going speak about a lot about stuff that can be found in NerdDinner, too. So the following video is worth watching it:
