Bringing VSTS2010 Testing to Australian User Groups (Part 1 of 2)

Over the past 2 months I have had the pleasure of visiting 8 Australian user groups as well as CodeCampSA down in Adelaide. I have chalked up around 12,137 kilometres (7,541mi) in flights and driven around 320 kilometres (198mi). While it’s been exhausting, it has also been very rewarding in terms of seeing the enthusiasm the community has for Microsoft’s next release of Visual Studio Team System. The primary focus of my user group presentations to date has been on the new testing tools in VSTS 2010. This includes the new Test Case Management, Data Collectors, Test Runner, Test and Lab Manager and Coded UI tests. In my next blog post (Part 2), I’ll recap some of the specific feedback from the user groups as well as a series of questions and answers that came up in the meetings.

And the winner is…

vs2008_teamsuite The main purpose of this first, short blog post is to announce the lucky winner of a full copy of Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Suite. As part of the series of presentations I have been collecting entries to go into the draw to win this great prize. The draw took place at the Victoria.NET user group meeting on Wednesday 12th August and the lucky winner is John McTainsh from the QLD MSDN User group. John will collect his prize on Tuesday 18th August at the next meeting of the QMSDNUG.

A big thank you to everyone that put an entry into the draw and came along to their local user group to hear my presentation.

For those of you that are curious, the user groups I have had the pleasure of presenting to on this round were as follows;
