It today’s world of fast moving customer needs and prioritization, organizations need to be able to adapt and change direction quickly and easily.  For application development teams, having an agile process is key for keeping up in this rapidly changing environment.  One of the most popular agile methodologies is Scrum.  The first half of the day will focus on Scrum theory and how to use it in the real world with Visual Studio Online.  The second half of the day will be an introduction to Git, how to work using a distributed source control system and how it differs from a centralized version control system such as Team Foundation Version Control.  We will look at how to setup and use a local Git repository and how to integrate with GitHub and Visual Studio Online for code management, collaboration and code reviews.
