Description

This three day course is designed for testers who need to gain a solid practical knowledge of testing applications using Microsoft Visual Studio 2013.

The course focuses primarily on the use of Microsoft Test Professional 2013 which is a standalone product or part of Visual Studio 2013 Premium and Ultimate editions. The course teaches you how to design test plans including test cases, test suites and test configurations. Best practices are also
discussed including and how you can make your tests as resilient as possible.

Attendees will learn how testers and developers can work more closely together to reduce the time it takes to find and fix software defects. Through the efficient use of new data collectors, developers should be able to pinpoint issues quicker than ever before.

Testers will also learn how to manage their test plans over multiple iterations and releases of a product including how to deal with different code branches within the same Team Project.

This course includes hands-on labs to reinforce practical skills and ensure you’re ready to use the tools on your return to your workplace.
