More than 80 percent of agile projects are using Scrum–are you? Instead of 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 the related tools. From the Product Backlog to the Sprint Backlog, from the task board to the burndown, it's obvious 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 work tracking. You'll use Visual Studio to refine a product backlog, forecast work, plan and manage a sprint, and achieve your definition of "done"–all using Visual Studio Team Services.

  • 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
