Software engineering practices have changed drastically in the last few years. Agile practices, DevOps, Cloud Computing, Open Source and similar developments have proven their effectiveness. Microsoft’s platforms for software development and cloud computing have also embraced these concepts and are at the leading edge in their domain.

In this two-day training you will learn how software development works with Microsoft’s tools and languages. Based on a consistent sample, you will learn how to

  • setup a development environment with the latest version of Visual Studio and Visual Studio Team Services,
  • highlight and learn to benefit from the latest developments in the Visual Studio C# IDE (e.g. PerfTips, live code analysis, CodeLens, diagnostic tools, (etc.),
  • use cross-platform build- and test-automation tools like Visual Studio Web and Load Tests, Visual Studio Team Services, Gulp, xUnit and Jasmine to automate your build- and quality assurance processes,
  • manage your Technical Debt,
  • create highly available and secure environments for your web APIs and web applications in Microsoft Azure with Azure Resource Manager (ARM),
  • setup a multi-stage (dev/test/prod) environment in Azure,
  • automate deployment to Microsoft Azure with Visual Studio Release Management,
  • using Application Telemetry with Application Insights,
  • discuss the advantages of the upcoming container technology Docker,
  • we will use a sample (web) application during the course.

Training Structure
The training is a combination of approx. 50% presentations with embedded demos and 50% hands-on time where you have your fingers on the keyboard and try what you have learned. Those who are new to the topics can follow a provided hands-on lab guide step by step. In areas you are already familiar with, you can put the guides to the side and create an individual sample with the latest tools and technologies. Attendees should already have basic knowledge about Visual Studio, .NET, C#, HTML and JavaScript. Detailed knowledge about the latest versions of these tools, frameworks and languages is not required.

Prerequisites
You will need your own laptop to do the hands-on labs. Ideally, you have the latest version of Visual Studio installed (detailed instructions about the necessary Visual Studio configuration will be provided) and you have access to your own Microsoft Azure subscription. If you do not have access to Visual Studio and/or a Microsoft Azure account, Microsoft will provide a limited number (first come, first served) of free Azure Passes that you can use to run a VM with Visual Studio in it. In that case you just need internet access and a remote desktop client on your laptop.

For the labs about build- and test-automation, you need your own Visual Studio Team Services subscription (free edition available).

 

Day 1

  • Welcome and introduction.
  • Setup development environment for the course.
  • Discuss the sample application used during the course.
  • Setup Continuous Integration (including first steps in test automation).
  • Managing Technical Debt with SonarQube.

Day 2

  • Adding an artifact repository to your release pipeline.
  • Continuous deployment with Visual Studio Release Management.
  • Configuration as code.
  • Application Telemetry with Application Insights.
  • Operating web applications in Azure App Services and Docker.

Delivery Plans – Visual Studio Marketplace

Interesting new extension in de market place voor VSTS.

Delivery Plans help you drive alignment across teams by overlaying several backlogs onto your delivery schedule (iterations). You tailor plans to include the backlogs, teams and work items you want to view. 100% interactive plans allow you to make adjustments as you go.

VSO Project Stakeholders (and Organizational Accounts)

From an email from Microsoft:

Invite stakeholders to a project to keep them informed on what’s happening with that team or project. They’ll have access to the team home page, where they can view updated project information. They’ll also have access to the backlog, taskboard, and Kanban board, where they can create and edit work items or work item queries. You can add unlimited stakeholders to your team projects at no charge – in addition to the five Visual Studio Online Basic users you get for free with your account!

If you intend to move existing team member(s) from existing plans to the new stakeholder plan, remember to visit the Microsoft Azure portal and remove any paid user plan that you no longer need, to avoid being charged for them on the next billing cycle.

With organizational accounts, users can use their own company credentials to sign in to Visual Studio Online. To use organizational accounts, link your Visual Studio Online account with Microsoft Azure and set up Azure Active Directory.
