Many teams working with Microsoft technologies are moving to Team Foundation Server and Visual Studio ALM. Most are not using the platform to its full potential. This session shows how some teams are using Visual Studio ALM tools to enable genuine agility and deliver well-crafted software.

In this session you’ll see ways to reduce friction and increase flow by focusing on the Visual Studio ALM features most teams find most helpful and appropriate ways to use them.

Learning objectives:

  • demonstrate which features of the platform actually help and some that might hurt
  • demonstrate not just that the tools exist and how they work, but how to teams have effectively used them to improve their development practice
  • developers will go home and make specific recommendations for changes in their use of TFS
