Bridging the Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010: Migrating From VSS to TFS
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, Etienne and Vincent give us a brief introduction to Team Foundation Server, it’s tools, and how it integrates with the tools in your environment that you’re already familiar with such as Visual Studio, Office, and SharePoint. They’ll also show us how migration from an existing Visual SourceSafe repository to Team Foundation Server can be automated so that you don't have to migrate everything by hand.
