Visual Studio Team System Developer Edition: A Path to Higher Quality Code
Writing high quality software is hard; however, recent years have seen an influx of tools to help developers write better code. This talk is split into two segments: how to write quality software with free .NET tools (NUnit, NCover, FxCop) and how to write quality software with the new Visual Studio Team System Developer Edition.
Visual Studio Team System Developer Edition provides several tools to ensure we write quality code. Many existing tools, such as FxCop for static code analysis, are now fully integrated within VSTS Developer Edition. New tools for unit testing and code coverage have also been added. In this session, we'll see how to create and run your unit tests, how to review test coverage across test cases, as well as how to use the static code analysis tool to ensure your code conforms to design guidelines.
