- Stopnja 200
24. april 2013 13:45
This session highlights a variety of collaboration patterns supported by the Visual Studio 2012 family of ALM tools. We will show how external stakeholders and different management, development and operational roles within the development team can efficiently collaborate using integrated tools that support timely information exchange, smooth flow of accurate project related artefacts and automated workflows. We will follow the lifecycle of a user request through analysis, development, testing, deployment and monitoring in production. You will see how built-in tools and process guidelines help coordinating the activities of individual team members and their work with the shared set of project artifacts. Our team members will experience a rich collaboration experience inside Visual Studio, by easily communicating and monitoring all project activities. We will achieve full traceability of events in the development process that relate back to our user request, by manually or automatically crating dependencies between work items, documents, build results, test runs, feedback responses and events from production monitoring. Software development is a team sport. You will walk out of this session knowing that the Visual Studio family of ALM tools can significantly help you achieve efficient team collaboration, leading you towards the successful delivery of software products that meet the business needs of your end customer.
