DEV309: Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server – Applying Version Control, Work Item Tracking and Team Build to Your Software Development Project

On the Thursday during Tech.Ed I will be co-presenting a session with local VSTS MVP Joe Sango. During the session we’ll be having a practical look at how to use Team Foundation Server’s Version Control, Work Item Tracking and Build Automation features in a software development project.

To make it interesting, Joe and I will each choose a different process template (MSF Agile or MSF CMMI) and walk through the typical workflow. Because the session only goes for an hour and fifteen minutes we’ll have to do it fairly quickly, but it will be a good opportunity to see the two processes executed side by side.

I suspect what you will learn is that while the governance processes are quite different, the day to day developer tasks are much the same in that they continue to use the tools to check-in code against work items and create automated builds – how you get to a work item which you can code against is where the action happens.
