We have two developer webcasts this week featuring Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) with Agile and VSTS and the continuation of the 24 Hours of Windows Mobile Webcast Series highlighting interoperability between managed and native code.

 

MSDN Webcast: Introducing Application Lifecycle Management with Agile and Visual Studio Team System 2008 (Level 200)

Development teams that desire to work more effectively with business stakeholders, reduce development errors, and lower application development costs are quickly adopting the principles of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM). Though there are innumerable ways to deploy an ALM strategy, Agile development practices help achieve the most benefits for the majority of projects. Practices from the Agile community are well defined and easy to understand, and an Agile process template is already included as a part of the Microsoft Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) / Team Foundation Server (TFS) toolset to accelerate Agile implementation. In this webcast, we provide a background on ALM concepts, we discuss the benefits of the agile practices included in the VSTS/TFS Agile process template, and we provide some best practices for organization-wide rollout and adoption. Presenter: Bill Nazzaro, Chief Technology Officer, IconATG

MSDN Webcast: 24 Hours of Windows Mobile Application Development: Interoperability Between Managed and Native Code (Level 300)

Even though the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5 contains a lot of functionality, sometimes it is unavoidable to call back (P/Invoke) into native Win32. In this webcast, we show you the basics of P/Invoke. In the second part of this webcast, we show how you can use existing COM objects inside your managed applications. Of course, both P/Invoking into native code and using COM objects inside managed applications are illustrated by a number of code samples. Presenters: Constanze Roman, Community Program Manager, Microsoft Corporation, and Maarten Struys, Technical Manager, PTS Software
