Speaker for tonight's presentation

Brian Jordan, Principal Developer Technology Specialist, Microsoft Corporation, US Public Sector Developer and Platform Evangelism Team



Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 introduces a whole host of new design and modeling tools to help enterprises and teams build software. UML Diagrams and the Layer Diagram can be used to plan and design the assets your team will produce, and communicate effectively about those designs during the entire development lifecycle. The Architecture Explorer and Graphs help you investigate and better understand the assets you have to enable more effective planning and decision making. Visual Studio also advances developer productivity with new tools for application debugging to collect more detailed diagnostic data during a test run leading to higher quality bugs that provide more insight to the developers on what actually went wrong when the bug occurred. We'll show how Test Impact Analysis helps developers test the right automated tests from within Visual Studio, while testers know what the right set of tests to prioritize and run is given recent changes introduced by the development team. Finally, experience how the ALM tools in Team Foundation Server 2010 support agile project management and improve quality assurance efforts by facilitating great collaborations between developers and testers.
