Software Testing with Visual Studio 2013
3 Day(s)
Course OverviewThis three day course is designed for testers who need to gain a solid practical knowledge of testing applications using Microsoft Visual Studio 2013. The course focuses primarily on the use of Microsoft Test Professional 2013 which is a standalone product or part of Visual Studio 2013 Premium and Ultimate editions. The course teaches you how to design test plans including test cases, test suites and test configurations. Best practises are also discussed including and how you can make your tests as resilient as possible. Attendees will learn how testers and developers can work more closely together to reduce the time it takes to find and fix software defects. Through the efficient use of new data collectors, developers should be able to pinpoint issues quicker than ever before. Testers will also learn how to manage their test plans over multiple iterations and releases of a product including how to deal with different code branches within the same Team Project. This course includes hands-on labs to reinforce practical skills and ensure you’re ready to use the tools on your return to your workplace. ObjectivesAt the completion of this course, attendees will be able to: • Understand the role of a tester in modern Agile teams• Explain the testing capabilities of the Visual Studio ALM product suite• Create and manage test plans and test suites• Manage test configurations and assign non default configurations to test cases• Create high quality, maintainable test cases• Execute tests using the Microsoft Test Runner• Use Test Case Fast Forward to help speed up the testing process• Create actionable, high quality bug reports• Verify resolved bugs and manage the bug lifecycle• Conduct exploratory testing using Microsoft Test Manager• Use the web-based Test Management interface to create and execute tests• Manage Test Plans over multiple iterations and releases• Report on test results and testing progress• Understand how to test new Windows 8.x style applications• Understand the benefit of Lab Management and how it helps testers• Gain an overview of how to create automated Coded UI testsAudienceThis event is designed for team members that perform the role of Tester within their team in either a full time or part time capacity. The course would also be beneficial for developers looking to increase their knowledge of testing. PrerequisitesAttendees should be familiar with testing theory and practices.
