TITLE: Managing your Application Lifecycle with TFS
DATE: Monday, March 31st 2014. (Day before conference)
As a member of an Agile development team, you want to learn the best practices for setting up a new project on Team Foundation Server, so that your team can get the best possible start for delivering better software, more frequently.

Some of the key topics include:
- Entering our requirements and setting up our portfolio backlog

- Introducing the team members to the appropriate tools for their role
- Fostering collaboration using Team Rooms and adding users and events
- Preparing version control for our developers to get started
