About this Episode

Do you write unit tests? Do you use Test Driven Development (TDD)? Dennis Doomen does. He started an open source project called Fluent Assertions thirteen years ago that now has over 100 million downloads and has been forked over 400 times. We talk to Dennis about how Fluent Assertions got started and how it has evolved over the years.

Dennis is a big proponent of TDD so we talk through some of the positives and negatives of using the methodology. Unit tests are something that most developers want to incorporate into their workflow but can't for one reason or another. Join us for this episode and maybe Dennis will be able to help you get over that hump. Are unit tests part of your workflow? Let us know on Twitter at @dotnet_Podcast.
