The ALM Summit in November 2011 reaffirmed Microsoft’s position of thought leadership in Application Lifecycle Management and Agile Practices. Luminaries from across the software industry presented, covering the evolution of practices across both the Microsoft and Open Source Software (OSS) communities and even showed how agile practices are revolutionizing automobile design. This intimate conference allowed Microsoft to show its product direction as a leading light in bringing the best of the industry forward across tools, technologies and practices.

Although all of the presentations/content is phenomenal, two of my favorites are:

A total of 29 sessions from the ALM Summit have been recorded and published for your use. In addition, each speaker’s presentation is available for download via this link. This includes the Keynote and Plenary presentations, as well as breakout sessions from the ALM Leadership and Agile Developer tracks.

Therefore, if you’re interested in ALM and want some exposure to great material that was presented then grab a cup of coffee, set your IM status to “Busy” and sit back, relax and load up a video (or two).
