At Build 2015, Microsoft made numerous announcements to woo the developers. Examples include allowing developers to port extensions from Chrome over to Edge, Microsoft’s new browser and Windows 10 supporting Android and iOS apps. Microsoft’s openness to other platforms and its focus on building an ecosystem makes the process of developing Windows 10 apps easy for developers. However, given numerous integrations and cross-platform product features rolled out as a part of Build 2015, testers need to have a solid game plan to succeed.
This webinar uncovers ways to test Android and iOS apps ported for Windows 10, how add-ins for Office can alter testing plans and ways to test numerous APIs released at Build 2015.
