“Real World Scrum with TFS2013” slides from Visual Studio Live 2015 in Las Vegas

I spoke at Visual Studio Live 2015 in Las Vegas (aka. VSLive Vegas) last week.  One of the talks I did was my “Real World Scrum with Team Foundation Server 2013” talk.

You’ve got Team Foundation Server 2013 and you’re looking to do Scrum.  Ok.  Great.  Now what does that mean?  What does TFS2013 actually do to help your Scrum team(s) run more efficiently?  If I’m the Scrum Master, what should I be coaching my team to do?  What can you do to help get to high-quality, “done”, working software faster?  How does TFS make anything in Scrum easier?

In this session, Ben will address these from the perspective of a technically-minded Scrum Master.  He’ll show you how to address four of the main pieces of running a Scrum project using TFS2013: Stakeholder Interaction, Planning & Execution, Testing, and streamlining the Definition of Done (DoD).  Along the way there will be plenty of talk about work item management, QA testing, feedback management, and automated builds. 

Here are the slides from that talk.  FYI, this talk was an extremely compressed version of my “Real World Scrum with Team Foundation Server 2013” online course at Pluralsight so if you’re looking for more, you should go check it out.
