Quoted from ALM With Visual Studio & TFS 2013 - Edinburgh: “Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server (TFS) provide an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solution that covers the range of software development activities from requirements capture through to development and onto testing and release into production. This free event will walk through these areas using Visual Studio 2013 and Team Foundation Server 2013, and will cover most new features, as well as the existing capabilities that these build upon.”
