Managing Work using Team Foundation Server allows you and your team to be more effective and more transparent. This course will look at managing the details of your project using the new features of TFS 2012 .

Team Foundation server is a powerful tool in the software development life-cycle. It has come a long way from just source control and builds. Every analyst, tester, manager, and developer consultant will at some time need to manage their own work as well as the work of the team. We'll look at how to manage that work using the new features of TFS 2012. We'll look at managing the backlog of work, writing our own work item queries, visualizing the work through kanban, and managing the tasks through agile task management. We'll also look at how we can leverage desktop clients using Microsoft Office to access TFS.
