This class is an expanded Team Foundation Server offering that goes beyond the curriculum offered directly by Microsoft. As a result, this course is not eligible for payment through Software Assurance Vouchers funded by Microsoft.
This two day course is designed to get your team working efficiently with Visual Studio 2010 as quickly as possible. The course focuses primarily on providing the skills and knowledge to use the features provided by Team Foundation Server 2010 including Work Item Tracking and Version Control.
The course introduces the various components that make up Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and the benefits of an integrated Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) suite. You will learn how to create and configure a Team Project and manage work efficiently using linked Work Items and customised queries.
The second major focus of the course examines how to use the version control system to check-in/check-out, branch, merge, shelve and much more. It covers tracking your changes using the new branch visualisation capability of Visual Studio 2010 as well as how to use treediff and annotate to find changes quickly and easily.
This course includes hands-on labs to reinforce practical skills and ensure you’re ready to use the tools on your return to your workplace.

Create, configure and manage Team Projects
Setup security at both the server and team project levels
