Load Testing in your Application Lifecycle

Verifying that a system works with a single user does not mean it will work in real-life scenarios. Load testing allow you to simulate real-world scenarios to verify your system will function and perform after real users start using it. This session will demonstrate how Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2010 can be used to perform both stress and load tests against a variety of technologies. Come join us for this free Web Workshop!

Test Management in Agile Teams

Scrum and other practices describe development teams as self-sufficient, meaning that all roles needed to develop and test the product are available on the team. This is incompatible with most classic views of quality assurance. This session will discuss how to integrate quality and test practices into your agile lifecycle using Microsoft tools.

Testing in an Agile Team

Agile software development can greatly decrease risk and increase your user’s satisfaction, but not without a cost. Testing in highly iterative cycles can be more difficult than testing in a ‘waterfall’ project- But it is still worth it! In this session we will demonstrate approaches to bring the quality assurance role into agile teams and how Microsoft tools support these approaches. Come join us for this free webcast!

Testing with SharePoint Projects

As an application platform, SharePoint is subject to the same best practices as any other application development. For example, you should version control your code, you should track your work, and you should test in a pre-production environment. In this session we will discuss the different types of testing suitable to all application development; then we’ll focus on the tools and approaches best suited for SharePoint.
