The value of Agile development is being shown by thousands of development teams every day… and numbers are steadily growing. However, software development is a process in which people, processes, and tools must be in perfect harmony. This is where Team Foundation Server 2010 comes in. TFS is an enabler of many agile principles, and provides visibility and transparency on all aspects of the process. It makes the process ‘alive’, and enables frictionless collaboration between all the roles and stakeholders involved in software development.
During this session, a short introduction about Agile and Scrum will be given, followed by a general overview of Team Foundation Server 2010. Demo’s will show how the Agile / Scrum methodology is actually integrated in TFS, and how TFS can be used to gain insights into the progress, status and quality of the project. Topics covered are Work Item tracking, source control, continuous integration, test integration and reporting. A short overview of the different Agile and Scrum process templates will be given, as well as a number of third party tools that mimic the Scrum board that is so iconic for SCRUM development.
