myVSTS March 2010 Technical Talk (Presentation Slides)

This month myVSTS organized a technical talk specializing on software testing techniques in Visual Studio. I would like to express my sincere thanks to those who attended the talk. Also I would like to thank our sponsors, namely Global Knowledge Network (M) Sdn Bhd and K65Labs. The following are the description of the talk:

A beginning-to-end walkthrough of software testing techniques in Visual Studio 2010

Software testing is one of the important parts of the software development life cycle. A primary purpose for software testing is to detect software failures so that defects may be detected at early stages of the software development lifecycle. Software testing, depending on the testing techniques employed, can be implemented at any stage in the software development life cycle. The software testing methodology is usually governed by the software development methodology adopted. Examples of the most commonly used software development methodology are Agile, Scrum, Waterfall, and V-Model. Different software development models specialize the test effort at different points in the software development lifecycle. Newer development models, such as Agile, often employ test driven development. Visual Studio 2010 offers a range of powerful tools for different types of testing. This talk provides a beginning-to-end walkthrough of the bewildering range of features offered by Visual Studio 2010 to test software applications. You will explore the testing types such as unit test, manual test, Web test, load test, ordered test, generic test and other test types offered by Visual Studio 2010. You will also explore how to use the tools in Visual Studio 2010 to manage and run your tests, collect and analyze your test results, and improve the quality of your software applications.
