Webinar – OSS Power-Ups: bUnit

Join us Wednesday, August 23, 2023, 17:00 – 18:30 CEST (11:00 – 12:30 EDT or check other timezones) for our free live webinar, OSS PowerUps – bUnit, with Egil Hansen and Steven Giesel. This is the twelfth episode of our series of OSS Power-Ups, where we put a spotlight on open-source .NET projects.

In this talk, you will learn how to get started creating tests for your Blazor components using bUnit, in a way that feels almost like regular unit testing.

bUnit is a library you add to a regular .NET testing project, e.g., a xUnit test project, that allows you to render your component with minimal effort, inspect the produced markup after each render and interact with the component under test. There is no browser involved, headless or otherwise, which means tests run fast and are predictable, just like regular unit tests.

The talk will cover all the basics, from setting up a bUnit test project to writing tests that render and interact with Blazor components.
