TechDays 2012 Sweden – Come see Visual Studio ALM 11 and TFS 11 in action!

without comments

Today is the start of Microsoft TechDays 2012 in Sweden. TechDays is probably the largest IT conference in Sweden this year, three days filled with great content covering everything from IT operation to cloud-based development.


I’m proud to get a chance to talk at the conference again and this time on the following topics (yes, Visual Studio 11 ALM as expected):

  • Build Lab in the Sky
  • Continuous Feedback

And as if this is not enough, Brian Keller from Microsoft DPE will give the big picture presentation on ALM:

  • What’s new in Visual Studio 11 for Application Lifecycle Management
  • Software Testing with Microsoft Test Manager 11 and Lab Management 11




Another great thing about TechDays is that you get a chance to connect to the smart people in MEET (Microsoft Extended Experts Team), a group of technology experts, MVPs and MCTs I happen to be a part of. Here are some of the MEET members blogs if you want to learn more about the MEET members:

    If you want to know more about what’s coming in the next version of Visual Studio then here’s an event for you. I’m giving a presentation next week on what’s new in Visual Studio 11 with focus on the ALM tools and there are lots of interesting new capabilities coming, from storyboarding and feedback tools to improved version control and simplifications in lab management.

    Register to the event here:

    If you want to have a sneak-peek go to and download the beta!
