Spend half a day with our Technical Experts to hear all about the Microsoft journey to Agile Development. It's informal, lunch is included and here’s a taste of what to expect:
Microsoft’s Journey on Agile Transformation
Microsoft's Developer Division, responsible for building massive software projects such as Visual Studio, Visual Studio Team Services, and Team Foundation Server, has been on a multi-year journey to transform itself from a waterfallian box product into an agile online service and regular client updates. In this session, we review the process and practices used by this division to deliver faster, react to feedback, plan and learn, stay connected to customers, continually improve quality, and measure success. We discuss the organizational issues experienced during the transformation and give examples of key practices and metrics used to improve the organization sprint over sprint. Hear about lessons learned in moving from a traditional software delivery team to a modern DevOps team.
Enabling DevOps with Visual Studio Team Services
Having seen in the previous session how Microsoft has transformed into delivering agile online services, this session will look at how you can use one of those services, Visual Studio Team Services, to enable your move to DevOps. We’ll take a look at key practices including Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, Continuous Testing and Infrastructure as Code to show how you can continuously deliver value to your end users.
