Group Exercise with Continuous Integration

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016 at 5:30 pm

You must bring a laptop. Don’t forget that power supply. We recommend more than 1 Gb of RAM and at least 10 Gb of free disk space. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have wireless Internet access so you can download on-site.

Over three months we will cover Git and Team Services and how you can start using them at work. The third session will be a team exercise with assigned work items, burndown charts, Kanban boards, and continuous integration in Team Services.
