Visual Studio ALM User Group Tour in New Zealand–Feb 2011

Early next month I have the pleasure of presenting at three of New Zealand’s .NET user groups. New Zealand has a great user group community and I always look forward to the opportunity to present there.

The topic for my presentation in all three locations is as follows:

Part One – What’s new on the Visual Studio ALM scene?

In the first part of the talk I will run through an overview of new and updated things from the past couple of months that relate to Visual Studio ALM. As a few examples, he will walk you through the following;

    1. Visual Studio Feature Pack 2
    2. Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 Beta
    3. TFS Admin Tool 2.1
    4. TeamCompanion 4 (Beta)

Part Two – Continuous Delivery can be a reality

Continuous Delivery is the next logical step after Continuous Integration for modern software teams. In this session, I will walk through how you can automate the build, deploy and test of your applications using Visual Studio 2010.

GIVEAWAY – Free ticket to the New Zealand Visual Studio ALM Conference

NZALMConf_SmlOne lucky attendee will also win a free ticket to the inaugural New Zealand Visual Studio ALM Conference in Wellington on the 6th & 7th April 2011.
