Bridging the Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010: Tester At Work
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 explore the many different facets of manual testing. First, they introduce us to the different types of tests that can be run with Test Manager and walkthrough creating a test case that runs against the application. Once the test case is designed, Etienne and Vincent show us how to run the test case, record the actions for each step as the test case is being executed, and then explore the results of the test and the information Test Runner captures. All of that information is then used to create a new bug that is then filed for the developers. Etienne also highlights different settings that can be enabled or disabled for each test, including video recording and IntelliTrace.
