without comments

I just pushed an update to the Custom Controls for TFS (WITCustomControls) project today. The project has been idle for a while but I decided to do a some work to enable the controls to work with TFS 2012. Soon after that pseranne contributed with a TFS 2012 Web control for the MultiSelectList control, which is the reason for the latest release.

These are the two recent changes: release added support for TFS 2012 Windows Controls. release added the MultiSelectList as a Web Control for TFS 2012 making the control available seamlessly in all TFS clients:

Links from “Agile Development with Visual Studio 2012”

with one comment

Last week I did a presentation on agile development practices with Visual Studio 2012 together with Informator. An interested crowd turned up and they brought lots of good questions. The features around agile planning and the new development tools seemed to have made the biggest impression, not suprising since they are really nice tools adding direct value to the users.

For those who want to take a deeper look at the new features I recommend downloading the official Visual Studio ALM 2012 evaulation virtual machine. All you need to try out the tools with great hands-on labs to go with ut in one package. Note: you will need a Hyper-V host to run the VM, I recommend using Windows 8 with it’s native support for Hyper-V.

These is also good getting started content on the Microsoft ALM site.
