How To: Run Tests On Different Machines In Parallel

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

I’m getting this question a lot, how to run multiple tests on different machines in parallel? Every customer that I work with has over 100 tests and some has more than 1000+.

But what about Coded UI Tests? you most know we...
