MongoDB for.NET developers
'I’m very proud to announce DevelopMentor’s soon-to-be released MongoDB for.NET course which I am authoring along with Pierre Nallet. Please subscribe to be notified ».

Finally, we will round out the course with a few topics that you will need to be successful with MongoDB including Server administration for developers and Security and permissions.

Testing Difficult Code
Of course, to do that you need a nice seam that passes in the default dependency. I recently did 3 videos in my ‘ Using ApprovalTests in.Net’ series that deal with how to test difficult code. These video actually have very little to do with either.Net or ApprovalTests, but they are common issues you run into when unit testing. Seams Testing difficult Code comes down to 2 things: Can I call the Method? Will the Method run to completion? And there are 2 techniques I use to deal with these, that individually are useful, but together are amazing. Here’s the video: The Peel 2. The Slice 3.
Using SignalR for real time data updates
Of course we can add some code to actively check for changes to the data but usually there will be no change so that results in a lot of useless network traffic. In a previous post I showed how easy it is to create a simple chat application using SignalR. And chatting on the internet might be popular but as it turns out there are rather a lot of applications that need to do more than just chat. As it is there are a lot more CRUD style applications, where users edit data usually stored in a database for some purpose, than chat applications. And that will remain so until reloads the data.

Fire Programmers not using Source Control
They all agree on 1 thing: “ Use Source Control ” … Of course which source control is still up for debate. In our community development work we come across hundreds of good developers. Those developers rarely agree on anything. They ceaselessly debate the merits of Test Driven Development. They argue about why C# is better than Java, or Ruby, or VB. They relentlessly pontificate about the future of Cloud computing. What continues to confuse us is the lack of source control adoption in the wider development community. They are living in a bubble. Our industry moves incredibly fast.

Unit testing code depending on the ASP.NET #WebApi HttpClient
Of course we still need tests for updating existing resources as well as deleting them but with these examples those should be easy enough :-). 'In a previous post I showed how to unit test an ASP.NET WebAPI Controller. But with a REST service there is both a client and a service component. Assuming for a moment the client part is also written in C# we should test that as well. In this case the client application contains the following class to load books from the REST WebAPI controller: 1: public class BooksClient. 7: _httpClient = httpClient; 8: BaseUrl = new Uri( "[link] ); 9: }.
