    • 0 Comments

    In the world of Scrum or Agile, do requirements really still matter that much? Well, if you want to compete in the world of the modern application, absolutely!

    In fact, they matter more than ever. Shorter release cycles mean that typical impediments to value delivery impact the application lifecycle more than ever. The challenge of “getting requirements right” is crucial to getting the right thing out the door before your competitors do.

    Come join us for this half-day event where we’ll:

    • Examine the impact that these compacted release cycles have on the application lifecycle and how they apply to the world of requirements.
    • Explore how Microsoft Team Foundation Server can serve as the mechanism to manage your requirements as well as how they integrate with the rest of the lifecycle.
    • Showcase InteGREAT by eDev Technologies, a robust requirements lifecycle management platform that can help teams meet the ever evolving needs of the modern application world.

    We’re bringing this unique event to four (4) cities throughout the Western US.  Click on the city closest to you to register! (Oh, and this event is FREE!)

    I hope you can make it!

    The How, What, and Why of Performance Testing Your Applications

    Verifying that a system works with a single user does not mean it will work in real-life scenarios.  Performance testing allow you to simulate real-world scenarios to verify your system will function and perform after real users start using it.  This session will demonstrate how Microsoft's Visual Studio 2012 can be used to perform both stress and load tests against a variety of technologies.  Come join us for this free Webinar!

    Managing Test Labs Without Headaches

    In 2010, Microsoft released a bold new features to support management of virtual test environments.  "Lab Management" provided the ability to easily spin up test environments, perform automated build and deployments, run automated tests, and collect diagnostic data. Unfortunately, many teams were discouraged by the infrastructure requirements.

    Now, with Visual Studio 2012 and standard environments, even small teams or groups that can't use Microsoft's Hyper-V can still benefit from lab management.  This session will demonstrate how to configure your existing environments for many of the same compelling features formally available only with Hyper-V. Come join us for this free Live Web Workshop!
