It is with an unquantifiable amount of pleasure that I can announce that we have just released a free public preview chapter of our Beginning ASP.NET MVC v1.0.
The name of the chapter is “Chapter 9 – Testing ASP.NET MVC Applications”.
It explains how to test controllers, how to use mocking to test interactions with the Http runtime, how to refactor an application to make it testable, and also shows some TDD in action.
Also, when you read it, remember that the intended audience is developers that are new to ASP.NET MVC and most likely also novice to testing, mocking and all that stuff (to address that Chapter 8 is an introduction to unit testing).
But without further ado, here is the link to get the free chapter Testing ASP.NET MVC Applications taken from our book Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1.0.
Remember that the usual warnings apply: it’s still a preview, additional editing and proofreading will be done, the layout is not final and still include directive for production.
Please, download it, read it, and let us know what you think of it (we’ll be monitoring the forum and answering to questions).
And while we are on the topic, since many people asked this, the book is almost complete, just a few steps of the long process need to be done and we expect the book to be available in bookstores (and on Amazon) at the beginning of August (a bit more than one year since we started writing the book)

PS: The first person plural you read in the post (we, our) is not because I suffer of a disjoint personality, but because the book is co-authored by Keyvan and I.
