To get an idea of how much fun and informative these webinars can be take a look at last month’s where Colin went through:

Why TFS 2015?



Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2015 is one of the most exciting releases of TFS ever. It’s packed with tons of goodness – too many to demonstrate in just 1 hour. In this video, I’ll take you through a lightning quick demonstration of just some of my favorite new features:

  • A completely new cross-platform build engine (with a web authoring interface)
  • Implementations of some of the top UserVoice requests for the past few years – not least of which are Team Project Rename and @CurrentIteration for queries
  • The new Identity control
  • Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) support
  • Kanban boards now allow doing/done columns, Definition of Done, swim-lanes and card customizations
  • Pull Requests and branch policies for Git repositories

A Lap Around TFS 2015:




Colin Dembovsky is a senior ALM developer for Northwest Cadence based in Cape Town, South Africa. After completing an MSc in Computer Science at Rhodes University, he worked as a developer (first in Linux using C++ and moving to .NET and C#) and later systems architect. He left development work to start ALM consulting, and has been an ALM MVP since 2011. He is passionate about helping teams improve the quality of their software, and do it more efficiently. Besides consulting and training, Colin is a frequent guest speaker and regularly blogs at http://colinsalmcorner.com and can be found on twitter at @colindembovsky.

When he is not working on a TFS server somewhere, he is playing guitar or mandolin and recording in his home studio, or entertaining his wife and 2 kids.
