Often times, we find out about geek celebrities rolling through town and can snag him for a special event. Next week is no different :) I was able to get Richard Hundhausen for an evening next week, and he’s a VERY good speaker. You may have even read his VSTS 2005 book, or you may often refer to his super cool and handy list of TFS widgets. If not, what are you waiting for, go NOW!! Hope you can make it, and tell your friends…it’s free even!
A first look at Microsoft’s Scrum Process template
Microsoft announced at TechEd a new process template: Team Foundation Server Scrum v1.0 Beta. This is a brand new process template built from the ground up specifically for Scrum teams. Scrum has become a dominant methodology in software development and Microsoft has listened and delivered. In this meeting we will dive into the new process template and explore Team Foundation Server 2010’s ability to support a team implementing Scrum. For more information on Microsoft’s move to better support Scrum read this RedmondDeveloper article: http://bit.ly/9LBTOf
