In this course, attendees will plan a new software development project and go through the steps to initiate the project using Visual Studio 2013.

We'll cover planning and running a sprint, as well as using the taskboard and burndown chart to track progress. On the second day of the course, we'll look at focusing on quality, stakeholder feedback, team collaboration, and getting regular stakeholder feedback.
The final module of the course looks at the many reports out of the box with TFS 2013, and how you can create your own reports quickly and easily using Microsoft Excel.
