TOPIC: At Tech Ed 2012, the biggest change over the previous years had to do with ALM and agile development – it seemed like one out of every four classes dealt with Agile in one way or another. What is all the fuss about – and how can our team use the best tools to keep developers and BA’s humming and business owners happy? We’ll explore our two-year long experience with Agile development at Columbia Sportswear Company and a live demo of the new features in the preview edition of Team Foundation Service. Along the way we’ll cover:
• The Software Development Hierarchy of Needs (from a great post by Scott Hanselman) • Our experiences with MVC, TDD, and Azure • Why the Spanish Armada didn’t work and Apollo 13 did – the Cone of Death • The dirty little secret behind scrum – hint, it’s not a magic bullet • Jealousy as a proactive emotion • Save the poker for Vegas • Managing priorities across software development teams in one list
