Now that BUILD has wrapped up and hopefully most of you are busy trying out the VS 11/TFS 11 developer preview, I wanted to let you know about an event that I will be speaking at in November.  At the ALM Summit in Redmond, November 14-18th, we get a chance to talk about the process of making great software.  We intentionally had fairly light coverage of our V.Next ALM plans at the BUILD conference because it we heavily oriented towards the new Windows 8 capabilities.  The ALM Summit is really the next time where we’ll get to go deep on our future ALM plans.

Last year was the first year of the ALM Summit and we got terrific feedback from the attendees about the event and how to make it even better for this year.

This year’s event has a great speaker line-up that includes Jason Zander, Scott Guthrie and Mark Russinovich among others that will talk about Agile, Scrum,  and other ALM best practices.  New for this year’s event, there are two breakout tracks:

 

  • ALM Leadership – strategy focused content to help CIO’s, application development VP’s and directors improve their teams software development process
  • Agile Developer – Agile best practices to help individual contributors become exceptional members of their team

We will also have a dedicated hands on lab for Team Foundation Server, I expect that a lot of the team will be around to get your feedback.

I hope to see you there!
