Pestering your script

By Don Jones and Jeffery Hicks

As we move into a DevOps-y world, one of the things you’ll need to start thinking about is how you’ll test your scripts. Here’s the deal: nobody likes a broken script in production. And although you might run a few tests on your script, you – or someone else – might also modify your script at some point, necessitating a re-test. Or, you might find some odd condition under which your script fails – well, you certainly don’t want to forget to test that condition again in the future, do you? In this article, we’ll talk about automated unit testing for PowerShell scripts.
