Testing with MTM and Team Foundation Service

Some of you saw that I was also on stage for Pieter his session on MTM and Team Foundation Service. I helped Pieter with creating a Windows 8 application so that we could show the workflow from setting up a story to fixing bugs and deploying the app on a surface.

If you missed it, no worries here are the slides. Have to say that the demo part was quite long and probably more interesting.
