Microsoft invites you to attend two complimentary sessions around Developer Tools on Thursday April 30th

Morning Session: scenarios for the adoption of Microsoft® Visual Studio® Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server

There are many scenarios where moving to Team Foundation Server can provide tremendous value to your organization. In these sessions, we will provide a thorough overview of the functionality provided by Visual Studio 2008 Team Editions and Team Foundation Server, with particular emphasis on:

·         Source Control integration,

·         Work Item and Defect Tracking,

·         Automated Build Services,

·         Project Management capabilities,

·         Process and Governance,

·         Portal Services, and

·         Reporting

We will illustrate different scenarios for the adoption of Team Foundation Server, as well as demonstrate some core capabilities that have high impact on project teams, from Teams with Visual Studio Team Edition clients, to those without. We will also provide background information on how to move forward and build out an roadmap for implementation using assessment tools and services. Also included will be information on licensing models that can help you efficiently move your team onto Microsoft’s next generation development platform.

This session will also highlight particular Visual Studio 2010 pieces of functionality throughout the presentation, as they apply.

Afternoon Session: Leveraging Visual Studio Team System for Best Practices in Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 Development

As more organizations are turning to SharePoint Server 2007 to develop business applications, they soon realize that SharePoint Server 2007 does not provide seamless integration into the development platform for the mature management of the application life-cycle . This session will show how the use of Visual Studio Team System, Team Foundation Server, and Concerto, a toolset that integrates SharePoint Server 2007 with Visual Studio Team System can help organizations manage  the delivery of SharePoint Server 2007-based solutions more effectively .

We will demonstrate team development practices around the same SharePoint Server 2007-based solution, allowing multiple developers to work in concert without conflict. We will also discuss how to implement a simplified and repeatable deployment process, including test environments,  and how to apply capabilities of Visual Studio Team System such as code traceability, continuous integration, centralized source control and work items with all associated best practices.
