Software has always needed to be tested manually, automation can help, but it is never going to replace the need for manual testing totally. How a team manages this requirement for manual testing can be key to a projects success or failure. In the 2010 release of Visual Studio, Microsoft have provided a whole new set of tools to aid in this process – Microsoft Test Manager. In this session I will show how MTM can be used to assist a tester in creating detailed, accurate and repeatable testing that are a joy to use (well might be stretching a point there!). Also I will show how the tooling can allow these manual tests can become the basis for automated tests and Coded UI tests, and how the advanced logging features of the tools allow bugs to be accurately passed back to developers for speed the production of fixes.
