Teams adopting agile project management practices are on the right track to start releasing more reliable applications faster and more frequently, which is one of the main goals of DevOps. Visual Studio Team Services and Team Foundation Server provide all the tools you need to run your agile teams. This session gives an overview of the all-inclusive support for organizing your work according to Scrum and Kanban, all through a number of live examples. For both processes, we will explain and demonstrate how to manage teams and team member’s capacity, how to define, prioritize, and decompose work using backlog lists, and how to manage and monitor project status using graphical tools (Taskboard, Kanban board), charts (Burndown, Cumulative Flow Chart) and dashboards. We will also address the support for managing agile projects across the entire organization (Enterprise Agile). Beginners in the field of agile project management will get a comprehensive overview of available tools, together with instructions how to configure and adapt them to the needs of their teams. Those with more experience will discover a range of new features and improvements compared to previous versions of this toolset.
