Craig Berntson will be giving a presentation on how to modify a simple MVC application in a way that makes it testable.
Unit Testing ASP.Net MVC
ASP.NET Model-View-Controller (MVC) is designed for testability. However, the out-of-the-box templates and examples are not well suited for good unit testing.
This session will show how to modify a simple MVC application in a way that makes it testable. Along the way, we'll visit such things as repositories, mocks,
dependency injection, and more.
