How do you find bugs before you distribute your app to customers? If you’ve found one, how do you ensure that you’ve fixed it? Even if you write up test guides, how do you ensure that they have all been used and that every step was conducted? Are you one of the many developers that spend a lot of time writing Word documents and meeting with testers to try and get them to test consistently? With Visual Studio Test Professional, we gave you the tools to conduct manual testing and to make it easy to verify that you’ve fixed the bugs. If on the other hand, you are part of an Agile team which practices exploratory testing (XT), you have the tools to create a rich, actionable bug from an XT session. You can also create a test case to ensure that parts of your XT session can be executed as a formal test case. In Visual Studio 11, we’re bringing all of this technology to Windows Metro style apps using HTML. In this session, we’ll show how you can use Visual Studio 11 to do manual or exploratory testing and file rich, actionable bugs. We will also discuss guidelines for building testable Windows 8 apps.
We all know that unit and functional testing is a cornerstone of successful app development. In Visual Studio 11, we have enabled developers to use modern, agile techniques for developing and testing their new Metro style apps using XAML. In this talk, we will demonstrate how to apply existing best practices to effectively test your app in this new world. We will use TDD to create and test a Metro style app using XAML using well-known patterns like MVVM and isolation, and will also show how to use our new Native Unit Testing framework to test native code.
