In this session of our conversation, Bridging The Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010, Etienne and Vincent look at automated functional testing by using assertions and the Coded UI Test Builder. Vincent records the actions he wants to tests, sets the conditions he wants to assert, the Coded UI Test Builders generates the test method, and then Vincent adds the test to the coded UI tests that he runs against the application.

With that, Etienne and Vincent, back to you.
