You've got Team Foundation Server, Azure DevOps Server, or a subscription to Azure DevOps in the cloud and you're looking to do Scrum. Ok. Great. Now what does that mean? What does TFS actually do to help your Scrum team(s) run more efficiently? If I'm the Scrum Master, what should I be coaching my team to do? What can you do to help get to high-quality, "done", working software faster? How does TFS make anything in Scrum easier?

In this session, Ben will address these from the perspective of a technically-minded Scrum Master. He'll show you how to address four of the main pieces of running a Scrum project using TFS: Stakeholder Interaction, Planning & Execution, Testing, and streamlining the Definition of Done (DoD). Along the way there will be plenty of talk about work item management, QA testing, feedback management, and automated builds.

You will learn:

  • Streamline your scrum process using TFS & Azure DevOps
  • Planning & Executing your sprints
  • Using TFS's Test Hub to track and manage the QA testing effort
