Do you want to build business code that is reusable across .NET, Silverlight, Windows Phone, and other platforms such as the new Windows Runtime (WinRT) in Windows 8? And do you want to manage your application lifecycle process using the powerful tools built into Visual Studio and supported by Team Foundation Server (TFS)? If so, then this workshop is for you!

Creating maintainable and reusable business code is at the heart of the open source CSLA .NET development framework. In this workshop you’ll see an end-to-end example of building applications for .NET, Silverlight, Windows Phone, and WinRT—where all those applications reuse the same business and data access code.

At the same time, you will learn how to efficiently manage the application development lifecycle as part of this end-to-end process. You’ll see how you manage your application development process, step by step, demonstrating how to fully leverage TFS and the ALM features of Visual Studio including version control, work items (bugs, tasks, and requirements) and builds. So come spend the day with Rocky and Brian and see what great things you can build.
