In the previous blogs, we have gone through the first two steps – Capture your findings and Create artifacts. In this blog, we will take you through the third step i.e. Collaborate. Test & Feedback extension provides many ways in which teams can collaborate with one another to drive the quality.
In addition to C#, C, C++, and Visual Basic code, you can now do semantic searches across Java code. Adding to our Java feature set and capabilities, we recently enabled contextual search for Java files in the Code Search extension for Visual Studio Team Services and Team Foundation Server starting with TFS “15”.
We are removing the UML designers from Visual Studio “15” Enterprise. Removing a feature is always a hard decision, but we want to ensure that our resources are invested in features that deliver the most customer value. Our reasons are twofold:
On examining telemetry data,
Over the last few months we have been steadily building up the capabilities of the Maven and Gradle build tasks to offer insights into code quality through popular code analysis tools. We are pleased to announce additional much-requested features that we are bringing to these tasks,
In the previous blog “Test & Feedback – Capture your findings“, we discussed the full “Capture” capability of the Test & Feedback extension. Once all the findings have been captured, the next step is to create rich actionable work items that can be consumed by the team.
Test & Feedback extension allows everyone in team, be it developers, testers, product owners, user experience, leads/managers etc. to contribute to quality of the application, thus making it a “team sport”. It enables you to perform exploratory tests or drive your bug bashes,
This month the focus is on making your DevOps environment rugged. According to Puppet, teams leveraging DevOps are deploying 200x more frequently and leveraging 90% more OSS components. Many of these teams, however, have not integrated security into their processes. The teams who have,
An early post on Parallel Test Execution drew attention to its subtle semantics. Three considerations directly contributed to that (1) Reach (2) Composability (3) Non-disruptive roll out.
The Visual Studio Test Platform is open and extensible, with tests written using various test frameworks and run using a variety of adapters.
Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of Code Search in Visual Studio Team Services. Code Search is available for Team Foundation Server “15” as well.
What’s more? Code Search can be added to any Team Services account for free.
In my previous blog post, I had written about how we have a single Release Definition for our team which runs all the test environments in parallel. Now that Release Management supports branch based filters while listing releases, it is very easy to track the health of a particular branch.
