New VSTS & TFS Training courses coming up around Australia

Microsoft Learning are due to release two new courses on Visual Studio Team System and Team Foundation Server in the next month or so and I have been engaged by Dimension Data Learning Solutions to deliver the first run of these courses around Australia for them. I expect the courses will be quite popular given the absence of such courses since the release of the product so I though it would be worth blogging about them.

Here’s the details about the two courses as well as links to their preliminary outlines. Given these have not been officially released yet, it is important to know that the outlines may change.

6214 – Effective Team Development Using Microsoft Visual Studio Team System (3 days)

This three-day instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and skills to manage source control management, a configurable build process, tools that aid in test driven development, and process workflow all integrated directly into Visual Studio 2008. By the end of the course, developers are equipped to use test-driven techniques and proven software processes to create high-quality software with a minimal change in overall effort.

6215 – Implementing and Administering Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server (2 days)

This two-day instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and skills to implement and administer Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server. The course focuses on installation and configuration details, team projects, work items, version control, Team Build, and reporting.

The courses will be delivered in six cities around Australia initially which should keep my frequent flyer points building up nicely ๐Ÿ™‚
