  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • AutoFixture

    AutoFixture is an open source library for .NET designed to minimize the 'Arrange' phase of your unit tests in order to maximize maintainability. Its primary goal is to allow developers to focus on what is being tested rather than how to setup the test scenario, by making it easier to create object graphs containing test data.

    One neat library for creating and generating test data is AutoFixture.  The creators describe it as follows:

  • Our demo project is a nascent itinerary planner and is available on GitHub. It has a model based around tourists who have excursions containing visits to places (e.g. Paris) and visits to points of interests (e.g. Eiffel Tower).

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • xUnit is a free, open source, community-focused unit testing tool for .NET.

    To manage and run my unit tests I use xUnit. It is a popular, free, open source and community-focused unit testing framework. xUnit provides a few useful ways to manage our test data.
