Event Details

Event Description: 

Does your organization have resources that use Microsoft Visual Studio Team System to develop software?  Did you know that it is possible to link your Microsoft Project plans directly to VSTF and push task, risks, issues and other data back and forth between these two tools?  Bryan Cole, Principle Program Manager at Microsoft, has been using this functionality for the past 5 years to drive and teach other Project Managers to deliver successful waterfall and agile software projects.  Bryan will walk us through getting set up and running using this exciting functionality across the two tools.

Learning Objectives: 

At the conclusion of the meeting, students will successfully be able to create a project schedule using MS Project & Visual Studio Team Foundation (VSTF) and link them together for project control and reporting. 

Students will be able to have fully integrated schedules between MS Project and VSTF. This outcome will successfully perform the ability to report on project schedule data within both the MS Project and VSTF environments.
