Microsoft & Tallan Present 1-Day Workshop on ALM with VSTS & TFS

On Friday, I reminded you that the NYC VSTS User Group is meeting Tuesday evening, January 27th. The VSTS user group is a great resource for you to come out each month and dig into Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) with Visual Studio Team System and Team Foundation Server (TFS).  If VSTS is something you’re interested in, Microsoft partner Tallan will be delivering a FREE one day workshop on ALM with VSTS & TFS.  This is another great free opportunity to improve your skills from Microsoft.  Read on for details…

Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) synchronizes business goals and IT investment priorities, provides valuable insight into the software development lifecycle at each stage of the process, and can enable organizations to get the most value out of their IT investments. Companies like yours that have embraced ALM have already realized greater productivity. With Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) and Team Foundation Server (TFS), Microsoft has the tools to help you adopt ALM and realize the benefits.  This intensive one-day workshop will show you how.

Adopting Application Lifecycle Management is brought to you by Tallan and Microsoft. The workshop will be held from 9:00AM until 5:00 PM on February 10th at the Microsoft New York Office at 1290 Avenue of Americas 6th Floor New York, NY 10104.  Meals will be provided.
