Building & Testing Win8 app with Team Foundation Services and Microsoft Test Manager 2012

Our Techdays 2013 session is online.

As a reminder, here is the abstract of the session:

Visual Studio 2012 offers you all the required dev tools to build nice looking Windows 8 Applications, but together with the Application Lifecycle Management tools in Team Foundation Server 2012, you can now also easily setup a distributed team development environment with version control, work item management, build automation and test case management. In this session, you will get a quickstart to develop a Windows 8 app, making use of Team Foundation Service (in the cloud). We will also demo the advanced testing features in Microsoft Test Manager 2012 to run Exploratory Tests on Windows 8 applications to detect potential bugs and to capture rich visual debugging information for the development team.
