Coded UI Presentation from Chicago Code Camp

If you attended my Chicago Code Camp session on Saturday, thank you and I hope you got value from it! I want to take a moment to thank the organizers of this event. Without these community leaders, we wouldn’t have been able to enjoy such a great code camp. Thank you Michael D. Hall, Scott Seely, Jean Seely, Sergio Pereira, Tim Stall and Clark Sell, not just for Chicago Code Camp, but everything that you do for our community.

I also want to thank Angela Dugan. Angela is our Microsoft Developer Tools Evangelist for Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana. If you got a book or shirt from my session, please thank Angela, she provided all of those goodies.

If you would like my slide deck, you can get it on my SkyDrive.

One of the questions asked, that I answered with 99% accuracy but wanted to confirm, was “Can I record UI actions with Firefox, or is it just playback?”. It is just playback and you must record using Internet Explorer. For more details, check out this documentation on MSDN.

Also, we discussed the VS 2010 and TFS VHD for exploring these tools. Microsoft has provided a VHD for each Microsoft virtualization technology and can be downloaded from the following links.

One of the books that I gave away, “Software Testing with Visual Studio 2010”, is a great little book that has broad coverage of the Visual Studio 2010 testing tools and I highly recommend reading it.

Thank you again. If you have any other questions, feel free to comment or reach out to me.
