Today I’m running a new event in Central London (just in the very center, at SQS Group offices!)
And covering one of the topics of the year, Team Collaboration with Visual Studio Online.
For those that don’t know what Visual Studio Online is, just say that it’s not an IDE, it’s everything else. Visual Studio Online provides a set of cloud-powered collaboration tools that work with your existing IDE or editor, so your team can work effectively on software projects of all shapes and sizes.
Yes, of course it gives you version control (git or TFVC) but also Tools for agile teams such as Kanban, Scrum templates and Dashboards. It provides you powerful services like the new continuous integration system that allows you to build, validate and deploy into the a hybrid cloud and that offers an open and extensible integration with other platforms.
Do you want to know more?
Come to the event today here
In this session we will go through the Microsoft latest ALM Collaboration tools, covering how to plan and track work in an agile environment. This will be shown using one of the three templates that Microsoft provides for project management, Scrum, and we will see how to customize your Kanban boards, create dashboards and reports for anyone in the team (not only dev and test people). As Visual Studio Online is a Microsoft Cloud Service that is evolving every month, we will see also what’s just came new into VSO this year.
