Implementing and Creating an Effective Test Strategy with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System
Today, identifying potential issues in the software development lifecycle early is critical to establishing a rhythm of verifying quality early and often. Implementing good software testing practices can lead to cost and resource savings and can be adopted by teams of all sizes. In planning your testing initiative, there are some key questions to ask and strategies to define Test Best Practices for your organization.
Please join Microsoft and Testhouse (Microsoft Visual Studio Team System Inner Circle Partner) for this half-day seminar. Doug Hoffman, American Society for Quality Fellow, Testhouse will provide an overview on how to create and implement an effective test strategy. In addition, senior members of the Microsoft Visual Studio Test Team will lead the discussions on the topics of test case management, tools in Visual Studio 2008, and provide a brief overview of what’s to come in the next version of Visual Studio 2010.
