Team Foundation Server (TFS) is an enterprise tool for managing your application lifecycle from requirements through code design, implementation, testing and deployment. The ability to trace requirements, tasks, defects, and test cases to checked-in code improves tracking to more quickly and reliably deliver projects. The next version of TFS improves upon the experience of creating a product backlog, planning iterations, and tracking the progress of a Sprint. This session will walk through a lifecycle using the Agile methodology to demonstrate many of the features available in the next version of Visual Studio and TFS. This includes the new Team Explorer, Capacity Planning, Boards, Storyboards, Source Control, and an overview of testing using the Microsoft Test Manager tool.
