This question already has an answer here:
Today I read Jon Skeet's blog entry on how to write a good question on StackOverflow.com. During the day I realized that I had a question which I couldn't find an answer for: "What is the most popular .NET unit testing framework?" So I asked on StackOverflow.com (deleted, 10k+ users only).
Which is the most popular .NET unit testing framework?
I'm trying to decide which unit testing framework I should learn, with the simple goal that it should be the one I would most likely be required to know if I changed jobs.
- I'm not looking for subjective answers nor opinions.
- I'm not asking which is better to use.
- I'm hoping to get an answer like "This site says that, in a survey of twenty companies, this framework is most commonly used," or "While looking for a job I noticed that ten companies used this framework, while twenty used the other."
- I have tried Google-ing this, but haven't had any luck so far. If I were to guess I'd say the answer is going to be MSTest or NUnit.
I explained my reason for wanting this answered.
I explained criteria for the answer: That I didn't want subjective answers (wanted evidence / statistical answers).
I explained what I had previously tried in order to find an answer.
Within about a minute my question had been marked down five times with a comment explaining problems that poll style questions cause.
Since I don't actually want subjective opinions, I didn't think of this as a poll type question... nevertheless, any idea where or how I should ask to get an answer and some positivity?
