A proxy, in its most general form, is a class functioning as an interface to something else. The proxy could interface to anything: a network connection, a large object in memory, a file, or some other resource that is expensive or impossible to duplicate.(From wiki). In case of WCF, proxy class helps client application to use WCF service,without knowing the address or implementation details. Here is the code for generic WCF proxy, using ChannelFactory class. ChannelFactory enables you to dynamically creating a proxy object based on the Service Contract. It will help you to avoid update service references or proxies generated using svcutil utility.

In ASP.NET 5, everything is nuget package. If you are developing a class library, that is also has to be a nuget package, which you can add as dependency in a different project.json file. This post will help you to build nuget package and deploy it locally.
Smart Unit Tests is a new feature in Visual Studio 2015, Smart Unit Tests helps developers to explore their .NET code to generate test data and a suite of unit tests. For every statement in the code, a test input is generated that will execute that statement. A case analysis is performed for every conditional branch in the code. When you run these smart unit tests, you can easily see which tests are failing and add any necessary code to fix them. You can select which of the generated tests to save into a test project to provide a regression suite. As you change your code, rerun Smart Unit Tests to keep the generated tests in sync with your code changes.
