to Two Fer in the C# Track

Published at Sep 28 2020 · 0 comments
Test suite

Two-fer or 2-fer is short for two for one. One for you and one for me.

Given a name, return a string with the message:

One for X, one for me.

Where X is the given name.

However, if the name is missing, return the string:

One for you, one for me.

Here are some examples:

Name String to return
Alice One for Alice, one for me.
Bob One for Bob, one for me.
One for you, one for me.
Zaphod One for Zaphod, one for me.

Running the tests

To run the tests, run the command dotnet test from within the exercise directory.

Initially, only the first test will be enabled. This is to encourage you to solve the exercise one step at a time. Once you get the first test passing, remove the Skip property from the next test and work on getting that test passing. Once none of the tests are skipped and they are all passing, you can submit your solution using exercism submit TwoFer.cs

    // can be called both without any arguments and also by passing one string argument.
    public static string Speak(string name="you") => $"One for {name}, one for me.";
