Agile teams focus on throughput, quality, and reduced waste. Developers love tools, but do the tools that agile teams use make a difference? In this session we explore the importance of tools to agile teams with a focus on productivity and collaboration. Are there any "silver bullet" must-have tools? Tools that really don't add any value? What about Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 ALM tools? Just how effective is the world's most popular project management tool: Microsoft Excel? The session concludes by sharing experiences, techniques, and opinions on where the next few years of tooling will take our team productivity. Audience participation is encouraged.
