Session Abstract:

This month’s QVSTSUG meeting looks at the recently released Microsoft Visual Studio® Team Test 2010 Beta 1 product and how it can drastically reduce the “find and fix” time for bugs that are raised by your testers. Today, significant time is often wasted trying to reproduce bugs with limited success and labelling bugs as “No-repro” can be frustrating for both testers and developers.

Microsoft’s new Test and Lab Manager Application allows testers to create, manage and execute tests quickly and easily in a dedicated user interface.  Using Test Cases, Test Suites and Test Plans, testers will find the new features allow them to better participate as a full team member in Visual Studio Team System.

The session will touch on the following features of the Visual Studio Team Test 2010 product.

  • Microsoft Test Runner
  • Microsoft Test and Lab Manager application
  • Bug Reporting and Data Collectors
  • Unit Testing
  • Coded UI Test
  • Web Test
  • Load Test
