Improving Enterprises is also pleased to offer an extension of AgileDotNet in an Agile ALM with Microsoft Team Foundation Server Workshop.
In this hands-on, mentoring workshop, we will dive into how to manage the Development process, the Quality Assurance process, and the Project Management process. We will have a full TFS environment, interactive labs, and instructors on hand for questions.
We will be breaking the day into the three segments. Each section will include a free form section to bring your problems to the ALM Team at Improving and get some much needed answers.
*Development lifecycle management is all about getting a streamlined routine that doesn’t hinder velocity and contributes to quality code. We will walk through taking code through develop, test, and deploy.
*Agile Project Management can be quite challenging, managing multiple projects, even more so. We will dive into how to set and measure effective KPIs, automate reporting, and manage work items in an effective and logical way.
*Quality Assurance management is encapsulated in an agile environment to being able to effectively and quickly report on the status of the product. We will walk through defining test cases, writing test steps, recording automation, and enabling regression testing.
Join us on at Improving's Office - 4710 Bellaire Blvd., Suite 305, Bellaire, TX 77401 on May 18th and discover best practices around Agile ALM and TFS and don't forget to bring your real-world problems for our on-site mentors!
