xUnit.net (https://github.com/xunit/xunit) was initially launched in September of 2007, almost seven years ago. When it was launched we described many reasons for implementing a new test framework for .NET (click here for more details). A couple of years ago we decided it was time for V2.0.
This talk discusses the rationale for why we built xUnit.net V2.0. We’ll describe some of the highs and lows of the development. In addition to describing the development we’ll dive into xUnit.net basic usage, and demonstrate some of the new features of v2.0, which include running tests in parallel, using Test Collections, PCL Support, and enhanced extensibility.
