Bridging the Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010: Part 2 of 13 - Automating the Build
In this post, we’re continuing our One on One with Visual Studio conversation from March 13 with Canadian MVPs Etienne Tremblay and Vincent Grondin, Bridging the Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010 . If you’ve just joined us, the conversation builds on the previous posts, so check those out (links below) and then join us back here. If you’re re-joining us, welcome back!
Bridging the Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010
In this session of our conversation, Bridging The Gap Between Developers and Testers Using Visual Studio 2010, Etienne and Vincent talk to us about what is a build, types of builds you can configure in Team Foundation Server, and the advantages of each. They also walkthrough configuring a build, explaining each of the steps required in enabling automated unit tests, sharing of source and symbol files, and retention of builds. Once the build is done, they show us how to read the progress report and understand the information it displays.
With that, Etienne and Vincent, back to you.
Etienne and Vincent, where can we get more information on the items that you discussed in this session?
- Types of Builds (Continuous, Rolling, Gated, Scheduled)
- Creating and Working with Build Definitions
- Team Foundation Build Reference
Remember, this conversation is bidirectional. Share your comments and feedback on our Ignite Your Coding LinkedIn discussion. Etienne, Vincent, and I will be monitoring the discussion and will be happy to hear from you.
