Unit Testing in Umbraco

About The topic

Unit testing is a great way to help you improve your code.  It allows you to make changes or refactor your code to improve it with some confidence that your changes did not break things.  I am sure many of us realize the benefits of unit testing but find it difficult to do when working with a CMS or platform that you don’t have full control over. This is the situation we will be discussing and I will show you how I have added unit tests to my customizations that are built on top of Umbraco. Umbraco is an open source content management platform built on top of ASP.NET, SQL Server, and AngularJS.  We will go over how to add a unit test to test your customizations for Umbraco as well as some insights I have gained from using unit tests in our Umbraco projects.

AWS ONLINE TALKS: Uninterrupted Business

Cloud security at AWS is the highest priority. As an AWS customer, you will benefit from a data center and network architecture built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organisations.
An advantage of the AWS cloud is that it allows customers to scale and innovate, while maintaining a secure environment. Customers pay only for the services they use, meaning that you can have the security you need, but without the upfront expenses, and at a lower cost than in an on-premises environment.
