Managing Projects Using Visual Studio Online

Visual Studio Online (VSO) provides a set of collaboration tools that teams can use to deliver value in the form of working software. VSO supports teams and projects of all shapes and sizes. This one day course will show you how to configure and use Visual Studio Online so that a team can plan and track its development work. Students work in teams, on a common case study, in a common team project.

This course is appropriate for all members of a software development team, especially those team members actively involved with creating and refining a product backlog as well as planning work for a sprint. This course will also provide value for members outside the team (managers, Scrum Masters, coaches, stakeholders, etc.) who want a better understanding of how VSO works, what kind of information it can track, and what information can be reported.
