Part 8 of 13 – Let’s Get Back On Track
In this session of our conversation, Bridging The Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010, Vincent updates the code to fix the production bug. Once fixed, he shows us how he associates the changes with the bug and commits the changes. Etienne then creates and runs a test case to prove that the bug has been resolved. Vincent highlights an important point – the new feature that he added is not in the build that Etienne is testing. Why? Etienne is testing the build from the code in the branch that was created for the production release (Vincent’s feature was not part of the production release). Etienne then merges the release branch with main branch to bring the bug fix in with the new features developed after the production release.
With that, Etienne and Vincent, back to you.
