Microsoft announces MSDN Tester Center

Microsoft announced the opening of the Tester Center on its MSDN site. The intent of the site is to promote the test discipline as a primary role in the software development lifecycle.
James Whittaker best describes the intent of the site:

At the Tester Center, our goal is to provide a community where software testers can share knowledge and learn from each other about testing, our day-to-day job functions, processes, the tools we use, and the various roles we play.

Focus on the test discipline within the Microsoft developer community has often been an overlooked aspect of the software development lifecycle. This is exemplified by the lack of test tooling within the Visual Studio development environment itself until recent versions of Visual Studio Team System. However, the Visual Studio Team System SKU of Visual Studio was often too expensive for many organizations leaving many developers to fend for themselves.
