Visual Studio 2010 Diagnostics and Analysis Tools to Improve Software Quality
As applications become more complex and pressures to decrease costs increase, we need tools to facilitate reducing the turn-around time for testers and developers to find and fix bugs. Microsoft Test and Lab Manager enables testers to collect more detailed diagnostic data during a test run leading to higher quality bugs that provide more insight to the developers on what actually went wrong when the bug occurred. With the addition of Test Strips, testers can generate automation as an artifact of their test runs helping to not only increase coverage of the application, but reducing the time it takes to manually test the application. Test Impact Analysis helps developers test the right automated tests from within Visual Studio, while testers know what the right set of tests to prioritize and run are given recent changes introduced by the development organization.

Randy Pagels is a Sr. Developer Technology Specialist and part of the Developer Platform and Evangelism tools team covering the Heartland District (MI, OH, KY, TN). He provides expertise on the Visual Studio 2010, Team Foundation Server, Testing, and Lab Management products. He helps customers get the most out of their ALM tools by explaining best practices, installation, and configuration through presentations, workshops, or quick starts. Prior to Microsoft he worked for 16 years as a developer in the IT area of DTE Energy. He has designed and developed many .Net web applications using agile methodologies.
