Most organizations already have a license for Team Foundation Server that comes with their MSDN. Come learn why companies are saving money and moving to Team Foundation Server 2012 for NOT JUST Source Control, and also helping them transform their development organizations to address the Modern Application Development landscape of today.

In this webinar, we take a trip through a typical development model and learn how Team Foundation Server 2012 addresses many aspects of the application lifecycle, including project management, QA and developer workflow, build, and continuous feedback generation. Additionally, we throw in some proven software engineering best practices for your team to leverage. If you are considering Agile, Kanban, Scrum or have a custom process, Team Foundation Server provides a flexible, reliable, and easy-to-use system to help manage your development. You may find that you probably already own a copy of Team Foundation Server, so why not see what it can do?
