About this Course

Course Description

Visual Studio Online (VSO) provides a set of collaboration tools that teams can use to deliver value in the form of working software. VSO supports teams and projects of all shapes and sizes. This one-day course will show you how to configure and use Visual Studio Online so that a team can plan and track its development work. Students work in teams, on a common case study, in a common team project.


This course is appropriate for all members of a software development team, especially those team members actively involved with creating and refining a product backlog as well as planning work for a sprint. This course will also provide value for members outside the team (managers, Scrum Masters, coaches, stakeholders, etc.) who want a better understanding of how VSO works, what kind of information it can track, and what information can be reported.

Having some project management and software development experience, either as a team member or as a project manager, is recommended. Experience with Agile software development, Scrum, and Visual Studio are also helpful, but not required. Attendees should read and be familiar with the Scrum Guide.
