    Woah we are on the penultimate chapter, would you believe it? Time flies when you are having fun! This chapter is all about Visual Studio App Center which is like a "Mission Control for apps" as Jim puts it. It's a place where you can achieve multiple functions in one place.

    Welcome back! Today we will go ahead and look at Chapter 14 which covers UI testing. In the last chapter we learned how to deploy to our local devices but now we need to check the user interactions and ensure the app performs as expected when interacted with including correct bindings and appropriate components.
