Free Public Class: A Day in the Life of Scrum with VSTS 2008 and TFS- 6/2 in Phoenix

I will be delivering my last free public class, "A Day in the Life of Scrum with Visual Studio Team System 2008 and Team Foundation Server" to Microsoft Phoenix next Tuesday, June 2nd.

There are still a few seats available, so feel free to register (please see invitation below with Invitation Key 4DEAA2). If you would be interested in a private class for your team or organization, please feel free to contact me for scheduling.


Please join Microsoft and Neudesic for a day in the life of Scrum with Visual Studio Team System 2008 and Team Foundation Server!  Agile methods are a set of development processes intended to create software in a lighter, faster, more people-centric way. Many development teams have adopted "agile" methodologies to manage change and to improve software quality. These methodologies promote continuous integration as a practice to build and test software products incrementally as new features are included, bugs are fixed, and code is refactored.

If you missed the first series of Agile & Scrum Essentials last fall; here’s your chance to attend the follow-on event where we’ll briefly revisit the basics of Agile and Scrum and provide a walkthrough of how to configure Visual Studio Team System 2008 and Team Foundation Server for Scrum. Participants will be familiarized with how key artifacts are managed within this popular process template for enacting Scrum in organizations.  

Join us for this interactive event as we explore a “day in the life of a Sprint,” that will give you a practical perspective of how Scrum teams leverage Visual Studio Team System for end to end management of the planning, execution and control of Scrum projects. The day will end with an overview of what’s coming in Visual Studio Team System 2010!
