Tarun Arora comes out “tops” @ TechEd India
Tarun presented at TechEd India and his session “Modelling Agile using TFS 2012” topped the ALM track in TechEd 2013 India and was rated highest under the category “Quality of Session Presenter”. He enjoyed connecting with over 2000 people in just a week across Delhi (TechDays), Pune and Bangalore (TechEd) and representing the ALM Rangers. Well done Tarun!
Robert MacLean unrolls the treasure map @ TechEd Africa
Robert delivered a number of exceptional sessions at TechEd Africa, with a focus on the ALM Readiness Treasure Map Windows Store App (aka.ms/vsartmapapp). He also took the opportunity to deliver a student day talk to a few hundred varsity students brought to TechEd, again using the Rangers app, as well as the branching and merging guide, and sharing his experience what it was like to work with Microsoft.
The following talks were redelivered and recorded as RangerTalks:
- Windows Store Apps, Tips & Tricks from the field
- What’s new in .NET 4.5 & VS 2012
- What’s new in LightSwitch
Jim Szubryt’s absence explained … community^passion
Jim delivered a number of phenomenal community events this month, which explains his “stealth” mode and why the TFS Reporting Guide project is only now starting to gain momentum on the reporting rails
Remember the August SDC? If not, here is his video: www.tinyurl.com/tfs2012js.
TFS Administration Exam a la Portuguese
André Dias finished the MVA about TFS Administration Exam (70-496), producing 22 videos, 30 questions and a lot of references linking the exam subjects to MSDN Articles in Portuguese.
He also coordinated the Azure Summit Brazil and MVP Virtual Summit (ALM Track) conferences; and gave a lot of talks for smaller events, universities and user groups. Wow!
We asked the ALM Rangers to identify the projects associated with the following collection of burn down patterns during Sprint 10 (April) … and we have a winner!
Congratulations to our WINNER: Esteban Garcia
