Ensuring Quality Through Unit Testing in Visual Studio Team System 2008

You want to write the best quality code you can, and you want to ensure it does exactly what it is expected to. By writing unit tests for both your existing code, and for the code you have yet to write, you can ensure that you code is functioning exactly as it was meant to. Learn how to take advantage of the unit testing features built in to Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008. Learn how to create unit tests for existing code and code you haven’t written yet, discover the benefits of code coverage analysis, and see how these tools help you ensure code quality. By the end of the session, you will learn how you can leverage unit tests and code coverage to ensure code quality and drive the design and development of your code.

TechEd Southeast Asia 2007 on September 10-13

I will be presenting two sessions at TechEd SEA 2007 in Kuala Lumpur.

ARC223: Unit Testing and Test Driven Development

You want to write the best quality code you can, and you want to ensure it does exactly what it is expected to. By writing unit tests for both your existing code, and for the code you have yet to write, you can ensure that your code is functioning exactly as it was meant to. Learn how to use the Unit Testing features built in to Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. Learn how to set up a Test Project and create unit tests for existing code, write a variety of unit tests, and see how the unit tests help ensure code quality. By the end of the session, you will learn how you can write unit tests to drive the design and development of your code

ARC236 : Real World Dataload Testing with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System for Database Professionals

Let's face it, testing your application with realistic data loads has never been easy. And be honest, testing with five customer records named "test 123 main street" is not realistic. The best way to test your application and its queries is to download production data and for most companies, that's either illegal or impossible. Microsoft Visual Studio Team Edition: Database Pro to the rescue! We explore how to use VSTS DB Pro to generate both meaningful data and data sets of large enough quantity to simulate real application loads. Then we will use the Unit Test feature of VSTS DB Pro to run and automate these tests. Testing will never be a chore again, it will not only be easy to do, but it will be fun. Agile is of both interest and benefit to developers.

I hope to see you there.
