Where to start when learning about VS Testing Tools? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am looking for recommendation for a good starting point to start learning about the software testing tools in Visual Studio. I am looking for not just documentation on how the VS testing tools work, but also a tutorial on the concepts of designing and planning tests.

    Are there any classes, books, videos, or online tutorials that anyone has found particularly helpful? I am not opposed to paying for training.

    I am part of a three developer team that has worked together for 20+ years. We have never done any kind of automated software testing. I have two objectives.

    (1)    Apply some automated testing to a large body of older C# and VB Windows Forms applications. I’m not even sure if it is practical to retrofit automated testing on top of code that was not written with testing in mind.

    (2)    Learn how to properly implement automated testing on new projects as we move forward.

    I have found these resources…

    This website looks like a great reference, but this is more documentation than tutorial.

    Team Services and TFS Documentation: Test Documentation

    https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/test/overview

    These books look pretty good. Is this where I should start?
