Manual Testing in Agile Teams

Although automated testing is often thought of as the holy grail of testing, manual tests still play a critical role in software development. This session will discuss and demonstrate how agile teams can incorporate test planning, test development, execution and defect management into iterative development cycles.

Test Management in Agile Teams

Scrum and other practices describe development teams as self-sufficient, meaning that all roles needed to develop and test the product are available on the team. This is incompatible with most classic views of quality assurance. This session will discuss how to integrate quality and test practices into your agile lifecycle using Microsoft tools.

Testing in an Agile Team

Agile software development can greatly decrease risk and increase your user's satisfaction, but not without a cost. Testing in highly iterative cycles can be more difficult than testing in a 'waterfall' project- But it is still worth it! In this session we will demonstrate approaches to bring the quality assurance role into agile teams and how Microsoft tools support these approaches.

Automated Load and UI Testing for SharePoint Projects

With SharePoint gaining popularity as a development platform, verification of SharePoint applications becomes important just as it does for other applications. In this session we will discuss and demonstrate how to use Visual Studio 2010 and related tools to verify SharePoint application functionality and capacity.

Testing with SharePoint Projects

As an application platform, SharePoint is subject to the same best practices as any other application development. For example, you should version control your code, you should track your work, and you should test in a pre-production environment. In this session we will discuss the different types of testing suitable to all application development; then we'll focus on the tools and approaches best suited for SharePoint.

Using Lab Management with SharePoint Development

The lab management component of Visual Studio provides the ability to easily create and manage development and test environments. In this session we'll demonstrate how lab management can be used to support development, deployment and test of SharePoint applications.
