In this Software Testing with Visual Studio 2013 training class, developers and testers will learn to use the tools in Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate to complete software testing requirements. Students will learn how to plan test efforts, execute manual and automated tests, and some techniques to manage work items and the test process workflow. This course will also prepare students for exam 70-497.

This course is designed for Visual Studio Online, a Microsoft hosted software-as-a-service (SaaS). Like most hosted application services, the look and feel of this service might change periodically. Although this course has been designed to minimize inconsistencies, you may notice some differences between the course content and the current version of Visual Studio Online that is available during the training event.

This course is intended for professional software testers and developers who have one or more years of experience working on a software development team. They manage the process of running tests, creating and monitoring bugs, and managing and mitigating issues that a software organization has in controlling test coverage for project requirements. The qualified candidate typically has a strong understanding of the software testing role and modern testing practices, and the ability to implement testing practices by using Microsoft technologies.
