VS ALM Rangers Guidance: Test Automation, Planning, and Management Concepts

January 9, 2016

I’ve been in the Microsoft Visual Studio Application Lifecycle Management Rangers program for almost five years now and am always proud to see our group contribute another valuable gem of real world guidance.

The Test Automation guidance provides practical test automation, planning and management of test plans/cases.

Test Automation is considered one of the five DevOps success factors that was discussed at the DevOps Enterprise Summit last fall.

Kudos to our Product owner (Gopinath Chigakkagari), development team (Bob Hardister, Hassan Fadili, Hosam Kamal, Oscar Garcia Colon, Patricia Wagner, Pierre Donyegro, Danny Crone, Darrin Rich, Baruch Frei, Ricardo Serradas, Rob Maher, Vladimir Gusarov, Ricardo Serradas, Case O’Mara, James Waletzky, Mike Douglas) and leader (Willy-P Schaub).

Check out the guidance, provide your feedback on the Rangers blog or contact us.

VSLive: First Session of 2016

January 9, 2016

VSLive will be kicking off 2016 in style in Las Vegas! This year’s theme “Code we can believe in” and will be much more interesting than listening to our presidential candidates :)

The session will have 10 tracks which includes a bonus of the Modern Apps Live. The tracks include:

I personally know many of the speakers including Brian Randell (@brianrandell), Rocky Lhotka (@rockylhotka), Marcel de Vries (@marcelv), Eric Boyd (@ericdboyd), Anthony Handley (@anthony808), Richard Hundausen (@rhundausen) and Mike Douglas (@mikedouglasdev). Just these guys alone are worth going to listen to as well as people like Ben Day, Jason Bock and the other great speakers.

Besides learning quite a bit, it’s Vegas and will provide a good bit of entertainment outside of the conference. Go sign up, get your discount before January 20th and learn!
