Training: Applied Visual Studio Team System 2008


Pluralsight is running a great course at the Boston MTC on Visual Studio Team System 2008. Here are the details:

Four intensive days learning how to effectively use Team Foundation Server and how Team System can affect everyone's day-to-day activities

Visual Studio Team System is an integrated software development platform. It is composed of a set of client tools, collected as Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite (Team Suite) and server component Team Foundation Server (TFS). Built upon the foundation of Visual Studio 2005 Professional, Team Suite contains tools architects, developers, and testers. TFS provides the core infrastructure to manage and track progress as your team builds solutions. This course provides deep end-to-end coverage of both the client and server functionality. During the class, the hands-on lab exercises will have your team role-playing and building a software solution using the tools taking advantage of requirements management, bug tracking, testing and nightly builds. You'll be exposed to what's built-in and what needs to be added though customization. By the end of the week, you and your team should have the knowledge and hands-on experience to implement Team System in your projects.
