Going Deep with Test Studio - John Bristowe
"Ugh, testing." The all-too-common refrain uttered by developers. What if a product could change this opinion? One that might put some joy back into the task of ensuring software meets technical requirements and user expectations. In this session, John Bristowe will walk you through one such solution by Telerik called Test Studio. He's demonstrate how you can use Test Studio to test a wide range of applications that cross-cut a number of technology stacks, including ASP.NET, Silverlight, and WPF. He'll also demonstrate its capabilities for generating test cases quickly and easily, and factoring into these tests performance criteria to ensure high availability and throughput (see web application performance).
