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:
- Starting VSTS
- Adding a new C#/Web Test project
- Adding comments
- Running the test, exploring the Web Browser, Request, Response, Context, & Details tabs
- 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.
