Today we are sitting with Madan Musuvathi for a quick tutorial on writing concurrency unit tests, powered by CHESS in Visual Studio 2008. Madan goes through a simple bank account example that contains a subtle concurrency bug. He shows how to turn a unit test into a concurrent unit test in a snap, find concurrency issues and debug them using CHESS.

CHESS is an automated concurrency testing tool for .NET and Win32 that finds and reproduces heisenbugs.
