A definition of "done" is very important to agile software development teams. Acceptance criteria help a team know what "done" looks like. Acceptance tests help a team know when "done" happens. Whether your team's acceptance tests are implemented by unit tests, UI tests, Web performance tests, or manual tests, Visual Studio 2015 provides the best acceptance testing framework available. In this session, you'll see why as you study the lifecycle of a requirement from its acceptance criteria through to its passing acceptance tests, using many of the testing tools and features found in Visual Studio 2015 and Microsoft Test Manager 2015.

You will learn:

  • How to express requirements in the form of acceptance criteria
  • How to use Visual Studio 2015 to implement automated acceptance tests
  • How to use Microsoft Test Manager 2015 to implement manual acceptance tests
