Async Unit Tests

If you are programming with C# 5.0 you will no doubt been making use of Async & Await which makes code work asynchronously with ease.

However, if you are trying to run Unit Tests against Async methods you will notice they are not picked up by Visual Studios runner, this is because you cannot return void for an Async method that you are trying to Unit Test, it must return the type Task.

I came across this solution on Stackoverflow.
