In this workshop, you’ll learn how to build higher quality applications that your users love using Visual Studio 2010’s Application Lifecycle Management Tools and Team Foundation Server 2010.

Your users and customers really don’t care about your process. They don’t really care about your tools. They do care about what you build.

You can break down what a user wants to a simple idea: they want a quality user experience. Most users want their applications to have an intuitive user interface. They want it to be connected—network and Internet ready. They want it to be available—24/7 is possible.  And finally, they want it to be fast.

Brian will show you have you can satisfy these four requirements by using the great tools available today.  In addition, Brian will look at what’s coming from Microsoft and how you can prepare to use those new tools.

You will learn:

  • What a quality experience is and how to define it.
  • About latest tooling Visual Studio 2010 SP1 from Professional to Ultimate
  • How your team can work better with Team Foundation Server 2010 SP1
  • The latest on what Microsoft has planned for the next big release

Visual Studio 11: Turning Ideas into Software

The world of software today is defined by the word “Experience”. You can see it in the way people have adopted new experiences for devices of different form factors, you can see it in how people want to experience their information and you can see it in the context of how people interact to build software solutions. Regardless of the solution you’re building, the fundamental need for a compelling experience exists. In Visual Studio 11, Microsoft aims to ensure that developers have all the tooling to create compelling user experiences, an IDE that sets a new bar for the developer experience and a family of products dramatically improves the team experience for everyone.
