Great VSTS 2010, Agile, and Scrum Webcasts Available Soon!


August 18th - Agile/Scrum : How to Deliver Business Value Faster, Presented by Riad Bacchus, Neudesic

Please join Neudesic to learn more about Scrum software development methodology and how it can help address the constant struggle to balance the project management constraint profile (time, cost and scope).  Scrum reveals a well known but not openly discussed truth in software development:  during a project, customers often change their minds about what they want and need (often called requirements churn), and unpredicted challenges cannot be easily addressed in a traditional predictive or waterfall process.   Scrum adopts an empirical approach, accepting that the problem cannot be fully understood or defined, focusing instead on maximizing the team's ability to deliver quickly and respond to emerging requirements.

August 18th - A First Look at Team System 2010  - Tester Edition

Visual Studio Team System 2010 Test Edition and the accompanying, standalone Microsoft Test & Lab Manager (MTLM) significantly extend the capabilities of the 2008 version and bring into existence some new capabilities. First and foremost is the support for manual, user acceptance testing. The new tools will enable additional tester roles to be part of the team and the application lifecycle. The good news for these testers is that they will not be using the (complicated) Visual Studio IDE, but rather a new, lightweight WPF application.

In addition, the tester benefits from being able to gather diagnostic information when running tests and automatically adding this information to a bug work item. The tester can collect details of the actions that are performed when running a manual test case. These details can be used the next time to fast forward manual testing.  In the 2010 version all testing artifacts are part of your team project. No more random documents on the portal, but rather the plans, suites, configurations, and cases are stored in Team Foundation Server.

Join Accentient for a drill-down into the new features and capabilities of Visual Studio Team System 2010 Test Edition:
- Defining acceptance criteria
- Test case management
- Creating test plans, test suites, and test configurations
- Creating and running a manual test
- Collect diagnostic (system impact) data during a test run
- Recording a manual test for playback
- Creating automated (code) UI tests
