We had a turmoil first day, with both the second part of the ALM Rangers sabbatical #4 starting (see upcoming flash for details) and the first two ALM Ranger sessions taking place at TechReady.

We got great feedback for the Quick Reference project, which Charles Sterling “Chuck” will be taking to the team for consideration. Keep candid feedback rolling in, because we need “your” thoughts and suggestions to continuously improve our deliverables. Brian Blackman delivered a great chat explaining the evolution of Ruck and how the ALM Rangers are dog fooding the latest tools, especially the Team Foundation Service.

Take note of tomorrow’s ALM Ranger sessions, highlighted in yellow, struck through indicates that session has been delivered:

  • DEV329 * : Learning the new source code management (SCM) features of Visual Studio 11
