More than 80 percent of agile projects are using Scrum–are you? Instead of using sticky notes, cards, or a third party product to plan and track your next Scrum project, consider using Visual Studio. Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio Team Services offer a great Scrum process template and related tools. From the Product Backlog to the Sprint Backlog, from the task board to the burndown; it's clear Microsoft really knows how to build tools to support Scrum teams. In this session, you'll learn how to implement Scrum and perform release planning, sprint planning, forecasting, and tracking of work. You'll use Visual Studio to refine a product backlog, forecast work, plan and manage a sprint, and achieve our definition of "done" all using Visual Studio Team Services.

You will learn:

  • How to use Visual Studio to create and refine a product backlog
  • How to use Visual Studio to perform release and sprint planning
  • How to use Visual Studio to track work during a sprint
