VSTS Web Test Step-by-Step Primer: 7-Minute Video by Microsoft A.C.E. Performance Engineer Chris Lundquist (with Copious Notes and Screen Shots from Your Humble Correspondent)

My colleague & A.C.E. performance engineer Chris Lundquist has compiled a 6:58 wmv featuring his unscripted yet eloquent dialog walking us step-by-step through a VSTS web test:

  1. Starting VSTS
  2. Adding a new C#/Web Test project
  3. Adding comments
  4. Running the test, exploring the Web Browser, Request, Response, Context, & Details tabs
  5. Modifying test parameters & re-running

This is the best introduction to this technology you may ever see.  It's certainly the best I've seen.
