In this first One on One with Visual Studio conversation, we’re joined by two of Canada’s experts on Visual Studio and ALM (application lifecycle management). Etienne Tremblay and Vincent Grondin will be talking to you about how Visual Studio’s extensive integrated tools make you more effective and efficient, allowing you to collaborate better with the rest of your project team. They’ll show you how testing tools like MS Test, IntelliTrace, and Coded UI make it easier for you to test, and test often, while not increasing your workload; about Team Foundation Server’s work item management and it facilitates better communication between you, the testers, project managers, and development managers; Team Foundation Server’s version control, lab management, and team build tools and how they can automate many of the manual tasks that you’re required to do today; and lastly, about Visual Studio Test Professional’s Test Manager and Test Runner so that you can do your part in reducing testing efforts and as a resut, faster time to market.

In this session of our conversation, Bridging The Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010, Etienne and Vincent work through a situation that we are all very familiar with – a bug in production code! But how do we deal with defects in code after modifications have been made in support of new features? Branch the code. Etienne and Vincent explore the concept of branching and then show us how to branch code in a project.
