So you're writing a Windows Store App. Cool. How are you planning to test it? The brute force manual testing old school QA approach, perhaps? It's possible to create a good app and test it by just clicking and typing but that can get pretty tedious. And it's not very efficient either. What you really want to do is to use the same automated testing that you'd use if you were building an ASP.NET, WPF, or Windows Forms application. In this session, Ben will show you how to use the testing features of Visual Studio 2013 to create unit tests and Coded UI Tests for your application so you can automate your testing effort. From the Test Explorer to data-driven async unit tests to Coded UI gesture support to MVVM design patterns – you'll learn how to design, write, and test your XAML-based Windows Store Apps.

You will learn:

  • Testing async methods
  • Data-driven tests
  • Extensible MSTest Framework
  • Coded UI Tests
  • Touch Gesture support in Coded UI Tests
