Testing in the .NET Maze

Thomas Arnold, Xtend Development, Inc.

.NET is a multi-tiered approach to developing applications for Windows OS and Web applications. While these are new development tools, many testing requirements remain the same, yet require additional emphasis by a QA organization. Plus, with .NET's extra layers of abstraction, even more developers enter the programming arena with fewer technical skills than previously needed for standard Windows development. For instance, if a bug is found "in the depths" there's now more likely to be a work-around to the issue instead of a true fix. In other words, treating the symptoms instead of finding a cure will now become the norm. This presentation introduces you to the big picture of .NET and what you need to be aware of as your employer moves in this new direction.
