Visual Studio 2010: What’s in it for the testers?


Visual studio 2010 provides following key enhancements to the testers

  • Create test plans, test suites, test configurations, and test cases with individual test steps
  • Gather diagnostic information when running a test, and automatically add it to a bug
  • Record manual test steps and replay them during a future test run
  • Create automated UI tests
  • Create virtual environments that define the set of roles required to run a specific application

In this section I’ve complied some useful demonstrations and documentation from channel9 & msdn
