Professional Scrum with Visual Studio 2012

Professional Scrum with Visual Studio 2012

Agile is where teams and organizations want to be and Scrum is a tool to help get you there. Microsoft uses Scrum, and many more are adopting Scrum to improve their ability to deliver innovative software. Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server 2012 continue the focus of enabling Agile teams. In this session you’ll see how you can adopt Scrum with the now default Scrum process template and streamlined Agile planning tools. We will create and groom our Product Backlog, look at support for multiple teams, create forecasts, and execute a Sprint.
