9. Fluent Assertions, test styles and writing clean code – with Dennis Doomen

We talk with Dennis Doomen about the benefits, goals, and drivers behind Fluent Assertions, the very popular .NET assertion library. How did it start and what does it set out to achieve? We talk about C# coding guidelines and writing clean code; the do and don’ts, the pitfalls and challenges, the mindset and attitude. And about test styles, var keywords, Typescript, Event Sourcing, the Gartner Hype Cycle, silver bullets, and the importance of context. Tools, processes, architecture, people, technology, all are ingredients of a final solution to build better systems.
