Rangers Solutions – Questions and Discussion Suggestions for future ChalkTalk Sessions. Please give us your feedback!

  • Comments 1

In the past we have structured Chalk & Talks (C&T) typically as a combination of information transfer using slides, demonstrations and Questions & Answers.

We will be hosting a number of the Chalk& Talk sessions, at events such as TechReady and possibly at TechEd, to collaborate around the Rangers solutions, such as:

  • TFS Integration Platform
  • TFS 2010 Requirements Management
  • TFS 2010 Upgrade Guide
  • TFS 2010 Branching Guide
  • Visual Studio 2010 and Team Foundation Server 2010 Virtualization Guidance
  • Visual Studio 2010 Quick Reference Guidance
  • Visual Studio 2010 “DataDude” Guidance
  • Visual Studio Team Test (VSTT) 2010 Quick Reference Guide
  • Rangers Visual Studio 2010 Architect Edition Guidance: Kickoff!

    To be prepared and structure the relevant sessions according to “your” expectations, could you please assist us by submitting questions and discussion points you would like to be covered in terms of the sessions above.

    Either add your feedback as comments to this post, or send them to me, so that I can aggregate them and forward them to the relevant dev leads of the projects.

    Thank you for your assistance in making the Rangers Chalk Talk sessions better going forward!

    • I have participated in just a few such sessions so my comments are no so much a reaction to prior C&Ts, but more of what might be helpful to a new participant:

      - Purpose of the Session

      - Target audience and pre-requiste knowledge/experience

      - Overview of the solution: what it can do and what it can't

      - Drill down on new/improved features (features->design->code)

      - Demo

      - How to get started using the solution

      - Q&A
