“Application Lifecycle Management in VS2010” session of TechiesUAE
I attended this session of TechiesUAE presented by Rolf Eleveld. First he took us through the installation and configuration steps required to run Team Foundation Server 2010 and Visual Studio 2010 beta 2.
Rolf then showed some of the new features in TFS 2010 version control and its integration with VS2010 including the web interface of TFS.
Also during the session, one of the interesting tool that he showed us is the new Problem Steps Recorder (or PSR) that ships with Windows 7.
This tool can help developers and IT Pros know the steps required to reproduce any problem to resolve it more quickly. For more info on it watch this video
During the session we also discussed the use of Entity Framework & Linq to Entities in the enterprise and also saw the demo of the interesting new Lab management capabilities introduced in VSTS 2010. This helps testers test the software in a virtual environment and raise any bugs, the developers can then launch the virtual machine from the IDE and find all the rich information along with the check point link included in the bug, for more info on this read this post on Soma’s blog.
The session lasted more than 3 hours.
