The details of how to utilize Scrum with Visual Studio and TFS within this book have allowed me to become the model of future development within my company, launching not only my career, but also a strong future for my development group. This book has explained to me a lot of the details that I could not have received from any of my colleagues. Now I am the one teaching my senior colleagues how we will best provide our customers with the latest in engineering CAD software.
Thank you Richard.
There's no code samples, no sample project and it's very hard for any beginner to get a grip on it, it's like a book to scrum developers learn what VS2012 has to offer, nothing more.
It's kind of useless, since the author don't teach how to do stuff most of the time, he just say, go to that place and do this.
There is a very nice mix of theory, process and technology as well as the all important human side to software development. Given that there are so many open source tools, add-ons and other libraries that can help implementing Scrum and extend Visual Studio, you will not find a lot of in-depth discussion on the non-Microsoft solutions, but Richard does provide enough information to know where to look for more information and to have an idea of what's out there.
The first couple of chapters go into the theory of scrum and the practice without the use of tools. These chapters are great for any reader, both management, developer or just stakeholder to learn more about the process when applied to general (.NET) development.
Then the planning elements are discussed, both from the Web Access, Excel, Test Manager and other tooling point of view. These topics are still great for any reader, as long as they use TFS once in a while.
Then there are a number of chapters that dive into the tools and technology. Richard discusses the Visual Studio features that help any Agile team, Test Driven Development in general and Continuous Integration and Deployment.
The last chapters dive into the hardest part of scrum, continuous improvement, inspect and adapt and the general prevention of flaccid scrum. These chapters are important for everyone who has been doing scrum for a while and wants to up their game. As well as for teams starting out with scrum so that they know what they might expect on their path towards a high performing scrum team.
I really like the balance between real world examples, humor, tips and tricks and short side steps that provide additional perspectives from other Professional Scrum Developers, Masters and Trainers. There is not just one way to become a high performing scrum developer. We're all on our own journey towards continuous improvement. This book is great to bring along for the ride.
While there are similar books for TFS 2010, the refresh for 2012 is quite nice, as there are some major enhancements. Richard does a great job at utilizing these enhancements and pulling them all together in this collection.
