Now that BUILD has wrapped up and hopefully most of you are busy trying out the VS 11/TFS 11 developer preview, I wanted to let you know about an event that I will be speaking at in November.  At the ALM Summit in Redmond, November 14-18th, we get a chance to talk about the process of making great software.  We intentionally had ...

VS 11/TFS 11 Developer Preview
