Course description

Tracking and maintaining a software development project requires a team effort. With big improvements in the Application Lifecycle Management tools in Visual Studio 2010, project tracking can now be part of the development process. Anybody from team members, to project managers can now update tasks, check in code, run a testing matrix, report bugs and so much more. In this course you will start with an introduction to the ALM tools found in Visual Studio 2010 Premium Edition. These tools cover user roles, management, reporting and work tracking. Then the course will move onto version control with side by side code comparison. Then you will be shown the Team Build Architecture and working with Microsoft Test and Lab Manager.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.
