This allows customers to have more fine-tuned troubleshooting pages for their errors experienced within TurboTax – Implemented the back-end logic for a new screen in the Turbo Tax Installer – Set up an automated build system for code coverage using NCover and Cruise Control.Net. This saves our engineers time in manually checking code coverage and makes the results of their testing efforts easy to present to managers/other teams
