Application Lifecycle Management: Automated Builds and Testing for SharePoint Projects
Whether experienced or novice, most SharePoint development teams can improve their processes, and this session looks at how Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio can help—specifically with automated WSP builds and Visual Studio 2010 UI testing (which can have a much lower barrier to entry than unit testing). When a few of these capabilities are strung together, the results are incredible for dev teams. Over several demos, we cover how to get started with automating the build, deploying the resulting WSPs to a remote SharePoint environment, then automatically running UI tests against the site. We show examples of testing custom functionality, and share lessons learned from implementing these techniques in the real world.
