Full Description

It is clear that Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) is the future of development from Microsoft’s perspective. Development is no longer a personal pursuit by one developer in a darkened room; it is a collective effort by a team of peers. VSTS supports this broader vision by providing a complete collaboration platform for the entire project team. VSTS takes a services-oriented approach leveraging Windows SharePoint Services and SQL Server Business Intelligence Suite. Additionally, VSTS brings the life cycle to life by making it part of the integrated suite.

For those seeking to use test-driven development, VSTS is the tool for you. If you’re an architect, there is a new set of domain-specific modeling tools that makes it easy to visualize systems, determine application relationships, and deploy into a logical datacenter. For testers, Microsoft’s new suite of test tools provides a powerful web testing environment with virtually unlimited extensibility. In addition, the new load tools allow you to perform world-class scalability testing.

Even if you are just considering adopting VSTS, Pro Visual Studio Team System with Team Edition for Database Professionals, Second Edition will provide you with a comprehensive overview. Furthermore, you will be able to dive deep into any area with detailed descriptions, samples, and walkthroughs. Roll up your sleeves and get ready for a new way of developing solutions!

What you’ll learn

This book will guide you through the entire breadth of VSTS. If you are a stakeholder, you have a portal that gives you instant access to project documents, status, and performance indicators. If you are a project manager, you will learn how create, manage, and assess team performance. As VSTS is integrated with Microsoft Office, you can quickly assign tasks and gather work status. With reporting from the data warehouse, you get a real-time view of all project metrics. If you are a developer, you will learn how to write higher-quality code, and ensure that the code works and performs well.

Who this book is for

This book is for anyone with an interest in Visual Studio 2005 Team System. Whether you’re an architect, developer, tester, or database professional implementing VSTS or just considering it, this book will provide you with the answers that you need.
