This course contains several modules, progressively explaining how to use Azure Test Plans to plan, track, and manage the software product testing effort.


This course is appropriate for all members of a software development team, especially those who are actively involved in defining, assuring, and increasing the overall quality of their software products. This course will also provide value for individuals outside the development team (managers, Scrum Masters, coaches, and other stakeholders) who want hands-on exposure to the capabilities of Azure Test Plans.
