This session gets you started on the right foot by walking through the process of setting up a project in Visual Studio Online (Microsoft’s cloud-based version of TFS), including using version control (TF VC or Git), configuring teams, gathering requirements, and reporting. You'll also learn how to establish effective Visual Studio solutions as well as project organization to support a robust application architecture. Leaving this session, you'll not only be able to set up your own Visual Studio Online account and Visual Studio projects, but you'll understand how to use Visual Studio Online to gather and manage requirements and the overall project lifecycle.

You will learn:

  • What Visual Studio Online is and why you’d use it
  • How to choose between TF VC and Git
  • How project management doesn’t have to be a bad thing
