Good evening all, it is with great pleasure to announce the next Gold Coast .Net user group meeting for the year!
For those who couldn't attend the previous meetings, we had discussed creating some social groups to try and make running this group a little easier and keep the communication flowing after events. You'll find the links to these in the "Link Love" side bar. I encourage you all to sign up, and please RSVP using the mechanisms, or please send me an email to help estimate the amount of pizzas by our good sponsor. Given the awesome turnout to the last events, we'd like to be prepared!
Producing high quality software can be an expensive business. Many businesses often try to avoid the cost of testing software only to find the costs on maintaining and servicing the software goes through the roof. In this session, you’ll see how Microsoft Test Professional 2010 and Lab Management 2010 can allow you to manage and run your testing efforts quickly and efficiently.
Microsoft Test Professional 2010 is a new application that allows your tests to create, execute and manage test cases. Refactor your test cases using Shared Steps and automate the replay of manual tests with ease.
With Lab Management integrated with TFS 2010 and Team Build, you can build, deploy and test your applications on an automatically provisioned virtual environment. No more waiting days or even weeks for a refresh of your test or staging regions, Lab Management manages this typically in less than an hour.
Team Lab Management utilises Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 (SCVMM) and Windows Hyper-V to deploy environments based on virtual machine images in your template library. During this session you’ll see this in action and watch as an application is build, deployed and tested into a brand new environment with the click of a button.
