Qld MSDN User GroupWe’re going out with a BANG!  A double-bunger for April, our last meeting at Waterfront Place*.

Damian Maclennan, Readify
Turbo charging Coded UI Tests in Visual Studio 2010

Patterns for creating flexible and maintainable UI tests
With Visual Studio 2010 came a suite of testing tools including CodedUI Tests, a UI automation and testing framework.  These tools, while powerful, have a number of pitfalls which can trip up teams on agile projects.

In this session Damian will demonstrate some patterns for creating flexible and maintainable UI tests using Visual Studio Coded UI for testing without tears.

LightSwitch

LightSwitch is a new product in the Visual Studio family aimed at developers who want to easily create business applications for the desktop or the cloud.  LightSwitch simplifies the development process by letting you concentrate on the business logic, while LightSwitch handles the common tasks for you.

In this demo-heavy session, you will see, end-to-end, how to build and deploy a data-centric business application using LightSwitch.  We’ll also go beyond the basics of creating simple screens over data and demonstrate how to create screens with more advanced capabilities.
