Just an update to note that Sam Guckenheimer’s book, Software Engineering with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System, is now available. I previously blogged about the book in this post.
Here’s the Amazon blurb and link:
Software Engineering with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System is written for any software team that is considering running a software project using Visual Studio Team System (VSTS), or evaluating modern software development practices for its use.
I also had the fortunate opportunity to review this book during its development. Here’s the review I provided for the book:
In Software Engineering with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System, Sam Guckenheimer captures the gestalt of Team System and the emerging software process paradigm of value-up. Measuring the value delivered, instead of the long-held paradigm of measuring work accomplished, is core to Team System’s design and implementation. As a result, you will find that the unprecedented project transparency Team System provides improves team interaction and project predictability. Moreover, it does so without burdening team members with time-robbing overhead. You must read this book to appreciate fully the vision behind Team System and the virtuous cycle of value-up software development it makes possible.
