Projects and Process John Brown: Hi. This is John Brown, and welcome to this module on projects and process. In this module, we're going to talk about how we get the project started in team foundation server. Where do we start? What do we do? One of first things we're going to need to do is establish what a process template is. Which process template do we need to use? Where do I put the project, into which collection? What is the security that I need to establish for this project? These are all the beginning pieces of just getting the project started and opening it up to the world.
Work Items Hello, this is John Brown and welcome to this module on work items within Team Foundation Server. In this module, we're going to talk about what makes up the work items themselves. What is the anatomy of a work item? When I say a work item, do I mean simply a user story of work to be done or do I mean a task? We're going to walk through that and really understand what work items are in Team Foundation Server. We're going to talk about the concept of templates and the ability to fill out work items quickly and easily based on a predefined set of criteria. We're also going to talk about queries and how to get the work items back out of Team Foundation Server in a quick and logical way using some simple querying tools. We're also going to talk about how we get notified through alerts when a work item has changed, a value is changed within the work item or a work item has been changed in state. And we're going to briefly talk about the Microsoft Office clients that will help us get those work items in and out of Team Foundation Server.
