This book presents practical techniques for writing lightweight software test automation in a .NET environment. Those who develop, test, or manage .NET software, will find this book very useful. Before .NET, writing test automation was often as difficult as writing the code for the application under test itself. With .NET, it is possible to write lightweight, custom test automation in a tiny fraction of the time it used to take. The emphasis of this book is on practical techniques that you can use immediately. It is intended for software developers, testers, and managers who work with .NET technology and have a basic familiarity with .NET programming, yet the book does not make any particular assumptions about the readers' skill level. The examples have been successfully used in seminars and teaching environments, and have proven highly effective as a platform for students who are learning intermediate level .NET programming.
