We continue to run free ALM sessions at various places around the country however feedback from the testing community has requested we run specific sessions for this audience to drill down specifically on their needs from functionality in Microsoft Team Foundation Server, Microsoft Test Manager and Visual Studio.

We have added a specific session for testers and QA mangers to our events page (http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/visual-studio-events) that you can use to get signed up. Specifically the agenda for this test focussed session and direct link to sign-up is below:

 

Introduction to Testing Tools within Visual Studio

London, United Kingdom

This session is designed as an introduction for testers to the test tooling within Visual Studio 2012/2013 and Team Foundation Server. This highly demo led session will show test teams how they can perform test case management and test execution through Microsoft Test Manager and can integrate closely with development and project manager team members. The session will later cover tools to support exploratory testing and automation.
