The first Microsoft Testing Stuff Meetup

  • Mar 18, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I'm excited to announce the very first "Microsoft Testing Stuff" Meetup group! It will be taking place on 18 March at Browns in Victoria, London.

This group has been created to allow testing professionals who are working with Microsoft technologies to discuss topics, share ideas, learn and network with their peers. If you are using Visual Studio testing tools such as Microsoft Test Manager, Coded UI, Web Performance and Load Test or are working with Microsoft technologies such as .NET, Azure, SharePoint, Dynamics etc. then this group is for you.

We will be having meet ups every few months where we can share experiences and provide a friendly and supportive environment for members to present relevant topics that are of interest to them and that other members might want to hear about. We will also have top speakers and thought leaders in this space presenting and there will be opportunities to network and ask questions over a drink.

We have a working agenda which will be updated. The working agenda can be seen below:

18:00 – 18:15: What is the Microsoft Testing Stuff Meetup group – Scott Summers, nFocus Director

18:15 – 18:45: New web test case management features in TFS 2012 demo – Danny Crone, nFocus Technical Director

18:45 – 19:15: Break – drinks in the bar

19:15 – 19:45: SharePoint web testing with VS2012 Update1 - Petr Sedlacek, Microsoft Test Consultant

19:45 – onwards: Networking over drinks in the bar

We only have a limited number of places so please sign up now to avoid disappointment.

    Here is a summary of Danny's session, "New web test case management features in TFS 2012".

    The new web test case management feature of TFS allows us to plan, manage and execute upon our testing effort from a machine that does not have to have any client software installed. It may not provide all of the features that MTM can offer the tester but there is enough to make it powerful and agile at the same time. For the demo we used the thin client and created new tests, executed these tests manually, created rich actionable bugs and added screenshots and other attachments.

    It was great to see everyone last night, thank you very much for coming!

    For those that couldn't make it, and to help document the Meetup I thought it would be useful to post a summary of each of the sessions. I'll post all of these during the coming days but here is the first one:

    Web & Load Testing SharePoint with VS2012 Update 1

    Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 have brought tailored experience of web and load testing of SharePoint Applications. Through the live demo, we illustrated how Update 1 makes creating SharePoint web tests easier and re-useable across different SharePoint sites. Dynamic detection of SharePoint parameters such as SiteName, List ID, and GUID guarantee re-usability and scalability in load tests. Web tests for common user scenarios were created and re-used during a load test against the SharePoint server.
