Use Visual Studio® 2010 and Agile Methods to Deliver Higher-Value Software—Without Waste, Delays, or Pain!

Using Visual Studio® 2010, development teams can utilize agile methods to deliver higher-value software faster, systematically eliminating waste and inefficiency throughout the entire development lifecycle. Now, top Microsoft Visual Studio architect Sam Guckenheimer and leading Visual Studio implementation consultant Neno Loje show how to how to make the most of Microsoft’s new Visual 2010 Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools in your environment.

The authors thoroughly cover Visual Studio 2010’s breakthrough team development features in the context of agile development with Scrum and related practices. They address every stage of development, from requirements through testing, and present a full chapter of exclusive “Lessons Learned” at Microsoft’s Developer Division.

You’ll learn how to use Visual Studio 2010 to empower and engage multidisciplinary, self-managing teams, and provide the transparency they need to maximize productivity. Along the way, Guckenheimer and Loje help you overcome every major cause of software waste, missed schedules, and poor quality—from build delays to irreproducible bugs, technology “silos” to inadequate distributed development processes.

Coverage includes

· Accelerating the “flow of value” to customers in any software project, no matter how large or complex

· Reengineering development to remove overhead: make individuals more productive and empower high-performance teams

· Using Visual Studio 2010 to reduce or eliminate “no repro” bugs

· Virtualizing test labs and automating deployment to make daily or intraday builds practical

· Testing loads early to identify emerging performance “trouble spots”

· Using Test Impact Analysis to quickly choose the right tests based on recent code changes

· Understanding the workload each team member is carrying and transparently shifting work as needed

· Automating “burndowns” and using dashboards to gain a real-time, multidimensional view of quality and progress

· Uncovering hidden architectural patterns in legacy software, so you can plan changes more confidently

· Working effectively with source, branches, and backlogs across distributed teams

· Sharing project and other data across .NET and Java teams

Whatever your development role, this book will help you use Visual Studio 2010 to focus on what really matters: building software that begins delivering exceptional value sooner and keeps delighting customers far into the future.
