About this course:
Before getting started with the overview of this course, lets have a peek at the history of Agile Software Development. It was first introduced in early 2001 when 17 software development practitioners gathered in Snowbird, Utah to discuss their shared ideas and various approaches to software development.
In this intermediate level course, students would develop a project from initial requirements to deployment using Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) as a complete Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tool. With this training course, students would explore the features of TFS, including backlog items, Kanban boards, burndown charts, bugs, and more to achieve continuous integration with automated builds and deployment.
The average salary for Team Foundation Server Administrator is $92,625 per year.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Manage an entire software project using Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) and Visual Studio Online
- Document work using features, backlog items, tasks and bugs
- Monitor progress with backlogs, Kanban boards and burndowns
- Automate testing and deployment with continuous integration
- Enhance team collaboration and craft higher quality software in less time using TFS
- Perform check-in, check-out, branching, and merging of source code using Visual Studio
- Define build configurations that include unit tests and deployment
- Estimate, prioritize, and schedule backlog items within sprints
This course is intended for
- Project Managers.
- Familiarity with Agile principles is helpful, Agile Fundamentals: Scrum, Kanban, Lean & XP
- Work experience using the iterative cycle and collaborative Agile spirit
