24. april 2013 15:05
Visual Studio 2012 made a huge step towards supporting agile project management out of the box. Web Access brings first-class tools for team management, backlog management, iteration and capacity planning. Through a comfortable interface, which supports intuitive drag-n-drop actions, and a number of statistics and graphics, such as Burndown and Velocity, you can efficiently plan your iterations and track the progress of your team. On top of all, you have an actual taskboard, which graphically displays the distribution and status of all tasks in the current iteration. We will show Scrum, as the agile methodology that is being successfully adopted by agile teams worldwide. The session will explain and demonstrate all phases in a Scrum project: managing the product backlog, planning and running a sprint, running a daily standup, monitoring sprint progress, and reviewing the sprint outcome. As a bonus, you will see some of the newest features added in the Visual Studio Update 2 released beginning this month! If you are experienced in Scrum, come to see how easily you can practice your skills in Visual Studio 2012. On the other hand, beginners will realize how simple it is to use Scrum with tools offered in this environment.
