*** UPDATED 4/30/2009 ***
If you attended the Agile & Scrum Essentials event series last fall, then you’ve been expecting this second round! And if you missed it, now you can catch up!
Please join Microsoft and Neudesic for a day in the life of Scrum with Visual Studio Team System 2008 and Team Foundation Server! Agile methods are a set of development processes intended to create software in a lighter, faster, more people-centric way. Many development teams have adopted "agile" methodologies to manage change and to improve software quality. These methodologies promote continuous integration as a practice to build and test software products incrementally as new features are included, bugs are fixed, and code is refactored.
If you missed the first series of Agile & Scrum Essentials last fall; here’s your chance to attend the follow-on event where we’ll briefly revisit the basics of Agile and Scrum and provide a walkthrough of how to configure Visual Studio Team System 2008 and Team Foundation Server for Scrum. Participants will be familiarized with how key artifacts are managed within this popular process template for enacting Scrum in organizations.
Join us for this interactive event as we explore a “day in the life of a Sprint,” that will give you a practical perspective of how Scrum teams leverage Visual Studio Team System for end to end management of the planning, execution and control of Scrum projects. The day will end with an overview of what’s coming in Visual Studio Team System 2010!
Please register today for the event nearest you!
You can also call 1.877.MSEVENT (1.877.673.8368) and provide the appropriate invitation code to register.
I will be at the Denver, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City venues and hope to see you there!
Did I mention this event is FREE?
Hey, check this out: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5k7a9YEoUI) It's the best Scrum summary I have seen. Very level-headed and well spoken. Check it out.
I can't get Portland to come up when I enter in the code. Irvine looks to be the wrong event, it says it's a session on DB Pro.
I fixed the Portland link, thanks for pointing that out. The Irvine event for some reason received the same invite code as our Database Professionals Workshop (touring right now). I will update once a new code has been issued.
DATE CHANGE: In case you didn't notice, the Denver date has changed to June 4th.
The “Day in the Life of Scrum with Team System” event in Phoenix finally has a new date!  It’s June
Denver, CO folks heed: as of 6/2/2009 at 2:16 MST, there are 11 people on the waiting list for the 6/4 presentation. 75 got in.
Correct, we are currently over-registered. We usually register beyond capacity to account for a normal rate of drop-off (people who register but don't/can't show up). So I'd encourage you to still register if you'd like to come - there's a very good chance you'll get in.
I attended this event in Phoenix on June 2nd... it was great but the link provided for the materials doesn't exist. Where can I get the materials (i.e. slides, code etc..) from the training?

I tried it just now and it worked for me.
