Are you happy? Are your customers happy? If you answered no to these questions, you need to come on and get happy with Brian on the Visual Studio 2012 ALM bus. Even if you answered no, you should come too and share your secrets—remember sharing is caring.
Now, Application Lifecycle Management is all about how we can take an idea that you can turn into a software solution that’s deployed and managed and ultimately retired. In this workshop, Brian will show you how Microsoft’s tool suite has changed and evolved to help you manage your entire lifecycle. You’ll learn about the new requirement gathering tools, the new rich based web based Product Backlog, Kanban Board, and Task Boards. You’ll learn about new features for developers including local workspaces, code comparison, and code review. We’ll look at IntelliTrace, a feature of Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate for developers, testers, and IT Pros. You’ll learn what’s new for Testers including support for Windows 8 apps and finally you’ll learn about DevOps and how System Center 2012 can help you find problems in production applications.
