Upcoming Team System Events

October 24: MVP TV: Gaze into the Crystal Ball: Reporting in Team System made Easy! (Webcast)

You’ve paid your nickel and it’s time to ask the Zoltar Fortune Teller for your future: “Is my software development project going down the toilet? Will I be able to ship on time, with high quality? Can I hit my budget?” (Wait, three questions = three nickels.) Zoltar says… Let’s face it, traditional status reporting is about as accurate as I am, and worse, it takes a whole lot longer!!! Team System can help! Its built in reporting capabilities provide a strong foundation for understanding the current status of your project. Not only does it provide a series of built in reports, it gathers the metrics to allow for excellent ad-hoc reports! Using both the built in and ad hoc report capabilities, finding the current status of your project, and predicting your project’s probability of success or failure along several axis. Come learn how to predict your future! You’ll learn how to interpret the build in reports, learn what’s required to create the reports, and how to use Excel pivot tables to connect to the TFS cube for ad hoc reporting.

November 5: Enterprise Build Automation w/VSTS 2008 Team System & Team Build (Portland)

Steven Borg of Northwest Cadence (Microsoft Team System MVP) will be covering some of the great new features of Team Build 2008, an inherent and powerful part of Visual Studio Team System 2008. You’ll learn to use Team Build 2008 to radically improve your code!

Come see real unit and functional tests being built, real code metrics being generated, and real work being done in an automated build. You’ll learn how to build legacy code, run tests and code metrics, rebuild your database, update your documentation, and even deploy your application into various test environments; all coordinated by a single command.

December 4: Eagerly Awaiting VSTS 2010? (Kirkland)

Join Northwest Cadence and explore the new features of Visual Studio Team System 2010 and what it means for your business, productivity, application management, and quality. During this event, we will cover Team Foundation Server and the much-hyped hierarchical work items, new improvements to History, Merge, Work Item Queries, and the focus on Agile development.

Numerous improvements from the Architecture edition (including full support for UML 2.x) will be demonstrated, including the new Architecture Explorer which allows you to quickly and easily visualize an application from the high level down to the object dependencies. We will also highlight many Developer edition functionalities such as updated tools for performance profiling, the Historical Debugger (formerly called “Proteus”), and the ability to view affected tests based on changes to the code. Finally, we will cover the Test Edition with a focus on the “Camano” user interface, Manual Test Runner, Test Case Management, and how Team System 2010 is a strong and reliable testing platform.

December 16: Coffee Talk – Reporting (webcast)

You may have seen some of the fantastic reports TFS provides out of the box at conferences and presentations.  We will answer lots of questions in this session: Have you wondered why the reports at your company don’t look quite as nice?  Are they missing enough data to make decisions?    What reports should you pay special attention to (Project Managers), and why should you even care about the reports (developers)?   We will also cover a few of things you need to do to really get the data into the reports and talk about how to interpret some of our favorite reports.  And, if you ask, we’ll cover how to interpret your favorites, too!

December 30: Coffee Talk – Software Development Lifecycle

With the thousands of books and articles published on Software Development Life-Cycle (SDLC), do you ever feel overwhelmed sorting through what is hype vs. what is actually being adopted by .NET corporations?  During this Coffee Talk, we will answer this question plus others that you bring!  We will explore the complexity of software development, the current best practices for improving your Software Development Life Cycle, and industry best practices and the latest IT research.
