Session: Test Automation – The key to continuous delivery
To be able to realize the dream about continuous delivery and DevOps we need to have test automation in place. Delivering new code often requires a safety net in the form of automated tests that catches errors before they reach production. But implementing test automation can also be expensive, it is important to focus on the right type of tests and also implement them in a way that make that as stable and maintainable as possible. Otherwise they will quickly become a burden that will make the developers starting to ignore failing tests
In this session we will look at popular framework for automated test such as NUnit, Selenium, Jasmine and Visual Studio Cloud Load Testing, and how we can run them as part of a deployment pipeline in Visual Studio Team Services.
Workshop: The Web vNext – A guide to modern effective web development, from TypeScript to ASP.NET Core and Azure
Back in 1990 Tim Berners Lee created the first web application, an informational page with some text and a few links. Since that day the web has moved forward at an exceptional speed, leading up to the modern advanced web applications that we today take for granted. This fast pace of development makes for a very exciting area of work, but it also requires us as web developers to keep up with all the new technologies. Read more about the workshop
