This C# example script executes a simple test to open a browser, navigate to the Sauce Labs demo web app, and then close the browser. It also incorporate a number of best practices, such as using environment variables for authentication credentials, and is set up  report Pass/Fail results to your Sauce Labs dashboard. You can clone this script directly from the saucelabs-training GitHub repo and modify it as you want to test your authentication credentials, set desired capabilities, and run tests against your own web app.
