In this episode, I am joined by my colleague and good friend Brian Keller, who shows how manual testers can use Microsoft Test Manager 2010 to manage their test cases. They can document all of the steps they will use to test a particular feature or requirement and then record whether each step passes or fails. Additionally, they can record their actions and specify that the next time they run a test, some of the steps will run automatically. Bugs created with Test Manager are stored in TFS and include a wealth of information developers can use to understand what happened.
Brian recommends the following resources for those who want to learn more about manual testing with Visual Studio 2010:

- Visual Studio 11 Application Lifecycle Management Virtual Machine and Hands-on-Labs / Demo Scripts
